A Birthday Dance at Terryspring Court

21st October, 2011

Terryspring Court resident Les Marriot celebrated his 99th birthday last week with a ballroom dancing party.


He has been a fan of dancing all his life, and says that he does not intend to give it up just yet, so the retirement scheme in Redditch organised a tea dance for him and the other residents to enjoy on his birthday.

"He took to the floor for all the dances and thoroughly enjoyed himself," said Acting Manager Zoe Hopkins. "He loves dancing and he really enjoyed the last tea dance we had. He's very active."

Les used to dance with his wife, Vera, who passed away 29 years ago. He explained that they were taught by some American friends before the war.

Since moving into Terryspring Court in July, Les is an enthusiastic participant in most of the activities on offer. He recently took part in a fishing competition which the scheme won and said that he thoroughly enjoyed it.
