The Riverside Day Centre hosted a Tea Dance last Friday to celebrate the forthcoming Queen’s Baton Relay in Newton Stewart.

Volunteers from Sainsbury’s, the Douglas Ewart High School and the Baton Relay Community Engagement Team turned out to help staff at the day centre serve up a scrumptious afternoon tea during a break from the live entertainment provided by music in hospitals duo Bill and David. Everyone enjoyed an afternoon of singing and dancing and the regulars at the centre were able to learn the young people new dance moves in the form of the St Bernard’s Waltz and Highland Plaid. The Tea Dance kicks off a week long programme of activities in the run up to the baton’s arrival, that includes boxing, baton making, swimming, football and much more.
