Flood damaged Lincoln Dance Centre to reopen after 10 weeks
Lincoln Dance Centre is due to reopen after flood damage forced the business to close over its busiest period of the year.
Floodwater from the overflowing Sincil Bank Drain came in under the doors, resulting in all of the floors needing to be replaced.
Sandbags could not stop the water which soon spread all the way through the building, several inches deep.
The business which is based in the Lincoln City Football Club stand on Sincil Bank has been closed since November 26 but will open its doors to customers once again on February 1.
Owner, Lois Baker, said the 10 week closure has cost a lot of money but they are set to re-open with a bang to thank loyal customers.
She said: "We've got a line dancing social as a party reopening followed by Ballroom, Latin, Sequence party.
"December is our busiest month of the year and being closed has cost us a lot of money.
"We would like to thank our customers who have been really good, even turning up to help along with the football club and the fire brigade."
The line dancing American supper is on February 1 from 8pm until 11pm and the Ballroom, Latin, Sequence party is on February 2 from 7:30pm to 10:30pm.
After the celebrations the centre will be running its usual schedule of dance classes and events for all abilities.
