Enfield neighbours take the bins out in fancy dress and perform YMCA to bring joy amid lockdown 

Bin night in Enfield took a musical turn as neighbours took the rubbish out dressed as the Village People and performed YMCA to cheer up their street during lockdown. 

A group of jokers came out of their houses dressed as the band and nailed the famous dance routine. 

Paul Renny posted a video of the moment on Facebook, with his younger brother starring as the traffic police officer.

They stayed true to the first ever YMCA dance, wearing cowboy, American Indian, traffic police officer and builder outfits.

One man even dressed in latex trousers and a leather jacket, mimicking the Village People’s disco version of a police officer.  

They even threw in some of their own original fancy dress outfits, with one man featuring as a chef.

The group were seen standing in a circle, keeping their distance amid coronavirus social distancing rules.  

Children and families were laughing and clapping as the newly-formed band cheered up their entire street. 

People were quick to praise the group of jokers on Facebook, with the video receiving more than 40,000 likes.

One user said: ‘Wish our street would do something like this. See you at 8?’

Their dancing has travelled worldwide, as one New York user said: ‘I think that’s great community spirit, love it have fun, stay safe and healthy.’

Their bin night YMCA performance no doubt brought smiles to their neighbours’s faces – and everyone who saw the video on Facebook.

This is not the first time families have taken to their drives to dance since lockdown began on March 23 as neighbours in Frodsham, Cheshire, run daily dances. 

Elsa Williams, 23, recorded the street dancing to Tom Jones’s It’s Not Unusual led by fitness instructor Janet Woodcock. 

Ms Williams said: ‘It was only meant to be a one time thing but it lifted people round here up a bit and they wanted more.

‘It’s also worth noting that our road hardly spoke to each other before all this!

‘Most people are dancing in their drives. Anybody who looks a bit too close together live at the same residence.

‘People’s health is paramount, so of course 2m+ distancing is maintained at all times.

‘Nobody is dancing in time. We know we’re not very good.’  

The 10 minute daily dance parties lift spirits while strict social distancing rules remain in place across the UK.
