BELCHAMP MORRIS SIDE
If you like to exercise and socialise, dance or play music, then please come along and join in. We practice on Monday nights at Belchamp St. Paul Community Hall from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., followed by refreshments at the Red Lion Belchamp Otten.
We were out in force at the opening of the new Sudbury Arts Centre, formerly St Peter's Church on Saturday 28th. October 2023, where we entertained in the newly renovated building. The place is spectacular and worth a look, (unlike our dancing). We then presented a cheque for £250.00 to the Stour Valley Men's Shed based at Melford and afterwards performed for the residents at Elizabeth Court Retirement Home, East Street, Sudbury.
