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 Churchwarden for giving us extra time to clear up!
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.

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.

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

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
We met a friendly dog on our day of which there are some pics. All
