As well as dancing the afternoon away, guests were also able to explore the home, meet the team and chat with retirees in residence.

Estates manager Tracey Muponda said: "Our ballroom dancing event was a great success. Everyone loved getting involved. If people were not up and dancing, they were certainly tapping their toes.

"The event was also a good opportunity for us to showcase the wide variety of activities we host here at Eleanor House, and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development."
