Silver Sunday 2020

Newmarket Town Council’s monthly Tea Dance celebrated Silver Sunday on Friday 25 October 2019 with over 60 guests attending.

Silver Sunday is a special day in the national calendar when everyone can come together to celebrate older people: a day in the nation’s hearts where older people feel valued and are given new opportunities to get out of the house, keep their minds and bodies active, learn new skills, make new friends and connect with the communities and generations around them.

In recognition of this special occasion Newmarket Town Council hosted a free Tea Dance kindly sponsored by Tesco Newmarket who provided a sumptuous Afternoon Tea; served by Zara Reynolds-Peirce, Community Champion, and Daniel Volland, Customer Service Manager with Robert Nobbs General Manger of Heath Court Hotel along with Christy from the Town Council who organises the Monthly Tea Dances.

Newmarket Town Mayor, Rachel Hood, said: “What an honour to join in with all of the fun at the Tea Dance. The guests are all delightful and smiling and the standard of dancing is tremendous. I encourage anyone who is thinking about joining us to pop in and take a look, even if it’s just for the tea and cake.”

Newmarket Town Council would like to invite locals to the remaining Tea Dances of the year, held on the 29th of November, and 13th December, between 2pm and 4:15pm. Entry is £4.50 per person and will provide you with afternoon tea and a variety of beverages, however, the raffle is optional. New dates for 2020 are yet to be announced but will feature on the Town Councils events page online.
