The popular Jerusalema dance craze has come to Muff. And possibly not where we expected it to commence here in the village. The residents, staff, management and friends at Warren View Manor have started the village dancing. Wheelchairs, walking frames, bright young and able, all gathered to dance last week and help cheer everyone up in these sometimes desolate days.

Well known local man John Weir now fancies himself on the dancing stage – the John Travolta of Muff he’s been mentioned as in recent days!! Maybe Riverdance is his calling! Who knows?

The residents and staff at Warren View Manor have been a real source of community over the past year. They always are, but this past year they’ve shown a togetherness and a dedicated effort to stay safe and stay well amidst this pandemic time. They have kept each others spirits high in the toughest of days and they’ve now come together to keep the village spirits high with their dance.

Joining the residents, friends and staff for the dance was a selection of children from The WRITE STUFF Kids Club. Children who have been unable to come to Warren View Manor to do their creative writing workshops but who still feel completely connected to everyone here. The dance really is a celebration of young and old, of staying connected and staying positive.

The staff and residents at Warren View Manor are an absolute credit to our village community. With this dance they are clearly leading the way in signifying hope, in creating hope, and in showing the importance of living and in having fun.

But alas, these very able residents now need others to follow suit. Warren View Manor and The WRITE STUFF Kids Club have started the Jerusalema dance in Muff, who will be next? Let’s see all you businesses get dancing and bringing more smiles to the people of Muff over the coming days and weeks. Could we get a dance on main-street? Go on, your business can do it…..the elderly and the young people did it, now it’s your turn?

Huge thanks to Teresa and John (and all their team of staff and volunteers) at Warren View Manor not only for their work, but for their leadership and their dedication to some of our village’s older generation in a time of much hardship.

But now, it’s time for the businesses in Muff village to get out there and dance.
