A WARTIME tea dance to commemorate the centenary of the First World War has been hailed a great success.

More than 40 people stepped out to a selection of nostalgic tunes at Widnes Library.

There was lots of fun and laughter as people shared memories.

The oldest dancer was 93.

A live organist kept people on their toes and there was a dancing demonstration.

Refreshments were served.

An exhibition of wartime artefacts were displayed by history enthusiast Tony Miller.

The free event was organised by Halton Council.
