A folk dance group based in St Neots is on the lookout for new members.

Heartsease was launched in 1977 and members have been dancing at events around the region for more than 40 years.

The side are encouraging new members to join up, as a way of meeting new people and keeping fit.

A spokesman said: “We enjoy learning and performing dances of England ranging from Playford to our own self-created dances based on the tradition. We are primarily a display group, but also very sociable in rehearsals, aiming to dance out at pubs, community events and traditional festivals in costume.

“Previous experience is not necessary; all you need is a sense of rhythm and a sense of humour.”

Heartsease meets at Eynesbury Primary School on Thursday evenings, starting September 13, between 8.15-10pm.
