Utungan Hall coming alive on Fridays

In years gone by the local community halls throughout the valley were a lively spot for social gatherings, especially town dances.

The committee at Utungun Hall are bringing life back to that tradition with dance nights in their local hall just outside Macksville every second Friday night from 7pm.

The next one is this Friday, November 3.

Committee secretary Anne Sutton said it was fun, a bit of exercise and a wonderful way to catch up with friends old and new.

You don't have to be a skilled dancer by any means.

"If anyone doesn't know the dances, that's fine, as we have lots of people to teach and are regularly running through old and new dances," Mrs Sutton said.

It's $5 per person to cover the cost of the music director and please bring a plate to share for supper.
