Residents from several care homes across Northumberland revived the traditional tea dance when they got together for a special social afternoon.

The residents of Four Seasons care homes, which include facilities in Cramlington, Blyth and Choppington, gathered at New Delaval and Newsham Working Men’s Club in Blyth, where they were joined by friends, relatives and staff, as well as members of the local community for the tea dance event.

As well as taking to the dance floor, guests were invited to take part in a singing session and bingo.

Tracie White, regional manager for Four Seasons in Northumberland, said: “The social afternoon is a great way for residents to get out to enjoy themselves, to meet people from other Four Seasons care homes and engage with members of the wider local community.

“We are planning to make the event a regular monthly occurrence.”
