Dore Community Transport

Dore Community Transport (DCT) is one of a number of charitable organisations that have been set up by people who wish to support their local communities. They address the very real problem of people in the area being cut-off from the rest of Society because of their lack of available transport. If you live in Much Birch or Kingsthorn and do not have independent means of transport or useable bus service then DCT may be able to help. There is no age limit, although young children should be accompanied by an adult. They will take you anywhere in their area or just beyond and they do go further if one of the drivers can take you. They take people (singly or in small groups) to the shops, hairdressers, to visit friends, etc., as well as to doctors, dentists, day care centres and hospitals.

General enquiries to 01981 240924 from 9:00am until 12:00pm, Monday to Friday, an answering service operates out of these hours, or email

Linedance classes

I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Jean Harris and I am a qualified Instructor and Choreographer of Line Dancing. I have been teaching Line Dancing at levels from beginners to intermediate for 28 years. 

My class at Much Birch Community Centre on a Wednesday evening from 7.30pm – 9.30pm is suitable for beginners to intermediate. If you are new to line dancing or have been out of circulation for a while you may find this class is a little difficult. However if there was sufficient interest I could consider extending the time and starting an absolute beginner class. If you have done line dancing before and would like to join us, please come along on a Wednesday evening. We are a very friendly group of dancers and we dance to all genres of music, at the same time enjoying the exercise and fun. I also teach classes at Westfield’s Community Centre and Clehonger Village hall.
Details of my classes and videos of dances can be found on my website. and also on Kool Kickers linedancing facebook page. Please take a look at my website or telephone me on 07506718907 if you are interested.
