Line dancing may not be as popular as it was in its boom days, but it’s still alive and kicking in the Falkirk area.

The activity is a great way to get active in a social environment and the Camelon Line Dancers are one of the most enthusiastic in the district.

The group has been doing it since 1995 and still has around 80 members practising their steps twice weekly in the Camelon Community Education Centre.

Anne Henderson, who started the group said: “It’s a real hoot, everyone has a great time at our line dancing group.

“The youngest we have coming along is four and the oldest is 90 so it’s great for people of any age. The brilliant thing about is that you don’t need a partner or any expensive equipment and anyone is more than welcome.”

The group do a lot of fundraising for charity and came out tops in the Howgate Challenge earlier this year, winning £250 for the new Maggie’s Centre which is due to be built.
