TEAS and coffees, sandwiches and cakes and quickstep dancing - what else, but an old-fashioned tea dance.

And it was enjoyed by 100 people, as they raised money for a Fenland village church.

But there was not only quickstep for partygoers in Upwell, but more modern forms of dance such as jive.

Live music was provided by local band Adlib, with cakes and sandwiches home-made.

The event raised £850 for Upwell St Peter's Church, which will go towards running costs and upkeep. About £250 of that sum was raised through a raffle.

It was all organised by the church's events committee, and took place on Sunday at Upwell Hall.

Ros Shorting, a member of the church committee, said: "It was absolutely brilliant, a very enjoyable afternoon with popular music. It is worth repeating again in the future.
