Dancing the night away has brought a bonus for a local community group.

A dance class organised in Ballycarry Community Centre by Thomas and Rachelle McDowell closed for the summer with a handover of £406 to the local community association towards running costs.

The class, held every Friday evening, has attracted a dedicated band of enthusiasts who have enjoyed learning various dances over the past months.

Members subscribed each week and the monies were handed over to chairperson Valerie Beattie and treasurer David Hume by Andy Bisp at the last dance of the season.

Mrs. Beattie thanked everyone for their generosity and Mr. and Mrs. McDowell for organising and leading the dance class.

Classes will resume on September 8 on Friday evenings at 7.30pm in the community centre and all are welcome.
