The end of November saw the Children’s Christmas Party arrive once more and yet again it was a resounding success with over 100 fed, happy and slightly less energetic children exiting the hall at the end.

Following the clear up afterwards it was a slightly different exit for the grown-ups many of whom staggered exhausted from the building.  Irrespective I am happy to report that Santa left in a somewhat better state and was able to continue with his annual duties undaunted.

So a big Thank you to David and Lisa (our Children’s Christmas Party Planners extraordinaire) and their many helpers.  Santa; thank you once again for coming along to speak with and give each child a present; especially as we know you are so busy at this time of year.  Thank you also to Gordon and his caretaking team, along with all the Committee Members who gave both their time and energy to help make this a resounding success yet again.

Late December saw many of the groups using the centre finish for xmas with many taking the opportunity to have their own small xmas party to celebrate with old friends and new, some having joined groups throughout the year.  .  Many of us find the idea of walking into a large group of people they don’t know daunting but what I’ve found during my quest to investigate what goes on at the centre is that most groups are actually quite small.  So if you don’t know what to do with yourself and you want to get out and about, have a look at the website to see what’s on offer. You’ll be surprised and we would love to meet you…
