Community Involvement

The Renishaw History Project started in September 2022 and to wrap the group up, the Rykneld Homes Community Involvement Team organised a Community Tea Dance in July 2023.

Although not all the members were dancers, they enjoyed watching and reminiscing about the social dances they attended in Renishaw in the past, which were regular features at the community hall. Some of the
Renishaw Tea Dance members danced for the first time in years. Other local dance groups were invited including jivers from Eckington Civic Centre and a ballroom group from Chesterfield.

The group was predominantly funded by the National Lottery, secured by a local history group. NHS Social Prescribers were in regular attendance to support the group with health and wellbeing issues. Through the group friendships were formed with members going on to join other local activities together.
