    Christmas 2017

    We had a real party this month! A hall full of good friends and welcome visitors, live music, games, a big Christmas buffet, gifts and the raffle. So many lovely donations of goodies too, for which we are very grateful. christmas_2017

    Special thanks to Gary’s friend ‘Dr Square’ getting us singing along to his guitar, to Gemma for managing the catering, & to Lynda for organising the Paper Planes contest. Thanks also to Andrew & Marcus in the kitchen, to Ruby for the Christmas Tree, Hazel who kept the Register all evening & to Henry for both chairing and the hoovering - & for presenting Dinah with a lovely bouquet which is still in bloom at home. Finally, blessings to Steve the Churchwarden for giving us extra time to clear up!

    We managed to raise £52.72 for the wings and wheels event. We had a Hubb stall, four of our members who attended. It was a nice day but quite tiring.

If so, are you over 60, or frail, vulnerable, or disabled, with no family able to help? If the answer to any of these questions is ‘Yes’, you may be eligible for a visit from “Handyman Paul” or his mates. They can, for instance, put up shelves, fix locks and smoke alarms and change light bulbs .They can’t do emergency repairs, or certain work like gardening, decorating or jobs requiring a ladder.
