Cllr John and Mrs Diane Hens­ley, Deputy Mayor and May­oress of Hilling­don, with Col­ham Manor Pri­mary pupils at the per­for­mance

HILLING­DON’S Deputy Mayor en­joyed a night of dance, thanks to a new col­lab­o­ra­tion and a lot of hard work.

Brunel Dance Show was opened by Year 5 pupils from Col­ham Manor Pri­mary School, who had spent an hour a week over the last few months learn­ing a rou­tine, taught to them by vol­un­teers from the Brunel Dance Club.

The pupils per­formed to par­ents, Brunel staff and stu­dents and Deputy Mayor Cllr John Hens­ley

and Deputy May­oress Mrs Diane Hens­ley on Satur­day, March 5.

The show was or­gan­ised by univer­sity stu­dents in­volved in Brunel Dance Club.

As part of their com­mu­nity strate­gic plan, the Stu­dent Union has been open­ing up more of their events to the com­mu­nity.

Is­abel Lewenz, a mech­ni­cal aerospace and civil en­gi­neer­ing stu­dent at Brunel, who man­aged the dance per­for­mance said: “We ap­proached

Col­ham Manor Pri­mary af­ter their suc­cess­ful per­for­mance in the mati­nee last year.

“This gave mem­bers of dance club the op­por­tu­nity to teach dance to chil­dren and get Brunel in­volved in the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“We in­vited the Mayor as we wanted to show all the hard work that mem­bers have been do­ing in and out­side of classes over the past three months, and also our trib­ute to Brunel’s 50th An­niver­sary.”
