Cheltenham’s older residents had a real blast from the past at our fantastic retro event last Friday 3rd February!
Held at our Lynworth Court Community Hub, the event had a special appearance from ‘The Poppy Sisters’ who delivered a series of lively performances which included singing along to a dazzling array of vintage songs from the 1930s to the 1970s.
The fabulous duo sported 50’s inspired outfits to provide a unique experience alongside their eclectic mix of tunes. Plenty of laughter and dancing ensued as the retro revellers enjoyed a stroll down memory lane.
A delectable cream tea followed as everyone came together to reminisce and have a laugh about the good old days.
Michele Walker, CBH Housing Support Team Leader said: ‘What a fantastic turnout to such a wonderful event. We are always looking at ways to bring together the community and we are thrilled to have had an opportunity to invite the ‘The Poppy Sisters’ along to give people coming to the hub an incredible and truly unforgettable experience.’
Those who were unable to attend this event can look forward to another opportunity to sing along with ‘The Poppy Sisters’ on Friday 31 March, 2-3pm at Wallace House Community Hub.
Not only did we take our dance moves to the next level, we’ve got the snaps to prove it:
