We’re waltzing back to where our love began in 1952

Dave and Sheila Pratt celebrate Valentine's Day by returning to the ballroom in Aberdeen where the first met.

A couple have celebrated a special Valentine’s Day – by going back to where it all began.

Dave and Sheila Pratt first met at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen nearly 68 years ago.

The pair fell in love and would regularly spend Saturday evenings waltzing and jiving under the clock in the iconic venue.

Staff at Jesmond Care Home and Renaissance Care wanted to help the couple return to the dance floor on Valentine’s Day, ensuring their favourite song played as they relived that special day in 1952.
