Christmas came late for the eager flappers of the Mexborough Women’s Institute... who finally got to perform their cheeky Charleston dance, FOUR MONTHS after snows cancelled their festive show!

The Mexbronians stunned their invited guests from Fishlake WI near Thorne, as the troop of 10 game ladies shimmied, flapped, and cake-walked in a 1920s dance routine choreographed by Conisbrough’s Laura Thickett at their “delayed Christmas party” celebrations last week.

The group – who range in age from late 40s to 78 – had first emerged on stage performing the Hawaiian hula.

Said Laura: “Everyone was very enthusiastic!”.
