Holiday At Home For Christmas

FRIDAY 3rd DECEMBER

Join us from 10am, for a morning of Christmas fun – games, crafts and general chilling and chatter with others.  Then after a seasonal soup and turkey roll lunch (and of course, mince pies and cream!) we will settle down to watch a festive film, which will include an ice cream and popcorn interval.  There will also be opportunity to head over to St John’s Church and experience our Christmas Tree Festival, where members of the local community have designed beautiful iconic trees to be on display.

There is a suggested contribution of £5 to cover the costs of food and refreshments.  You can contribute on the day, but places need to be booked by 26th November to help with organising the catering.
