Hundreds of older people showed off their dance steps as they took part in a traditional tea dance.

Care provider Quantum Care held the event for 200 of its residents from all over Hertfordshire, including Borehamwood and Potters Bar.

Guests enjoyed tea and cake and live music at the event at Allum Hall in Elstree, which formed part of a week to raise awareness of the importance of eating and drinking enough as an essential element of care.

Debbie Gilard, who helped organise the event, said: “The aim was to create awareness and ensure good nutrition and hydration for older people, while having fun at the same time.

“It was a fantastic day and everyone really enjoyed themselves. One 95-year-old gentleman said he’d had the best day of his life.”
