Love was in the air at BDC

BRIXHAM DOES CARE CAFÉ was the venue  for Martyn & Josephine’s St Valentine Song & Dance Party and everybody who attended enjoyed a cuppa and a piece of cake, while singing along to songs ranging from The Everly Brothers to The Wurzels.   The BDC Office had no more tickets to issue and, at one point, the kitchen ran out of cups to meet the demand from yet another packed audience.   The café tables were romantically decorated with roses and those who felt like a dance found enough space to jive, waltz and twist the afternoon way.   Some lovely raffle prizes were donated and £240 was raised for the befriending charity’s coffers.   Thanks to all concerned.      

Regular attendees should note the next date for their diaries – Monday 11th May 2020 – Martyn & Josephine’s Marvellous May V.E. Day Song & Dance Party. 1.45pm-3.45pm.   Doors open 1.15pm.
