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.
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 Church warden for giving us extra time to clear up!

FREE Handyman Help!
Do you need someone to carry out any of those minor but maddening repairs and maintenance that need doing at home? Are you a Havering tenant ? 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. To apply: contact your council.
Wings and wheels event 2017
We managed to raise £52.72 in total but then we minus fees for the wings and wheels event. We had a Hubb stall, four of our members attended. It was a nice day but quite tiring.
Main news of the week is that Hubb met on the 1st December, 2016 for Christmas. We had a record attendance. Many of our members made donations of food or money for food and raffle prizes.
Christmas promotional event - 2016
On the 16th December, 2016 some of our trustees and committee members arrived on a cold morning in Romford for a charity show under the ice skating marquee. There were lots of other charities and members of the public walked round and spoke to the charity members to find out more, we had some visitors and Hazel and hubby stood outside the marquee handing out leaflets.
We met a friendly dog on our day of which there are some pics. All committee and trustee members are wearing our blue sashes
