A U3A of Highbridge’s Social Evening that was held at the Ritz Club in Burnham-on-Sea on Saturday 1st March and was a great success. This new ‘activity’, billed as “Dining and Dancing at the Ritz”, was organised by popular demand following a members’ BIG “O” Birthday celebration at the end of last year.
The earlier event, attended by a number of members, had been so enjoyable that they had asked the lady concerned to organise a similar one for the U3A. Over 60 attended and following an excellent supper the D J soon had the members dancing, in their various styles, to music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
As the evening wore on, age began to tell with a few, but the ‘young at heart– and body’, jived away until they ran out of puff. It was obviously a success because requests were made for a repeat performance later in the year.
