LINE DANCING CLASS: I am doing a bit of canvassing around organising a line dancing class on a Thursday at 11.30am at the parish hall. The cost would be £5 per person, and would take place once a month. Is this something you would be interested in? If it is please let me know, as it would need a minimum number of people to attend for it to be viable. A fun and sociable way to keep moving!
