A bit of light fun for dark times. The retirement community residents in The Village Retirement Group have taken social distancing to a whole new level this week. Residents took their weekly line dancing class on the footpaths and driveways outside each person’s home, spaced out along the street a suitable distance not to place each other at any health risk.
The Village team said proudly, “the Village Taigum residents are showing us all we can stay positive and active while practicing social distancing.”
Sound up for this one! 🔊 This is social distancing done right. We're so happy to see our community keeping fit, active and most importantly positive. ❤️️😊 Show someone this video to make them smile.
