Last week The Peel’s adult and youth members came together to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a truly intergenerational Valentine’s Ball. Participants ranged in age from under 1 to over 90 years old!

The day started with a delicious cream tea, followed by line dancing with The Peel’s regular instructor. There was live singing from Linda Hall, a raffle, and a Valentine’s themed prize bingo session.

There were lots of great outfits too, with red as the main colour of choice! The centre was transformed with some fantastic décor.

Huge thanks to Kimberley and Jeana, The Peel’s heads of adult and youth services respectively, for putting on such a fabulous event!
