<B>Storm at a tea dance</B><BR>From the Sunday Mercury (Birmingham)<BR> <BR> <BR>IT is a quaint English pastime enjoyed by the elderly in village halls across the country. The tea dance sparks images of pensioners decked out in their finery, dancing to classic old tunes and enjoying a cuppa.<P>But today the Sunday Mercury can reveal how one community has been torn apart by the genteel hobby. Bitter in-fighting has led to the weekly event being scrapped - and now rival villagers are up in arms, threatening legal action amidst angry claims of intimidation.<P><A HREF="http://icbirmingham.icnetwork.co.uk/0100news/0100localnews/page.cfm?objectid=11552845&method=full" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><P>*********************************************<P><B>Trouble brews over tea dance</B> <BR>BY CHRIS JOHNSTON in The Times<P> <BR>A WEEKLY village tea dance has been cancelled after a dispute between its organiser and the committee that runs the local hall in Staffordshire. <BR>The Friday afternoon event, a highlight of the rural community’s social calendar for 17 years, came to an end last week after the Norton Canes Community Association decided that it could no longer tolerate its organiser, Ray Wellings. The association runs the community centre that hosted the dance for pensioners.<P><A HREF="http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,2-2002033109,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>
