We have had a great December, starting off with the Children's Christmas party and Christmas market on Sunday 2nd December.
Volunteers of Springwood Families hosted an amazing party for the children in the community, with a disco courtesy of *fitnFunkey*, games, crafts, buffet, Christmas carols and a visit to Father Christmas in his grotto. All the children received a gift from the big man himself. Lots of happy faces were beaming on the day. You can see the photographs here in the Gallery . If you took any photographs, we'd love you to tag us in them on Facebook.
We had beautiful items for sale at the market, including, handmade jewellery, candles, festive treats, chutneys, jams and beauty items. A huge thank you to all the stall holders who came & supported us on the day.
Orchids lunch club enjoyed their festive Christmas lunch on Friday 14th December. Centre manager, Jennifer & volunteer Sue worked incredibly hard to make the lunch a great success. We had lots of positive feedback, some comments included 'it was the best lunch they'd had in a very long time' & 'beautiful'. Guests were treated to unlimited wine & juice and enjoyed soup or egg mayo for starters, served with warm crusty bread, followed by a hot and cold buffet, including turkey, gammon, pork and vegetarian option. Traditional Christmas pudding was available, along with some not so traditional puddings but all looked delicious. Cheese & biscuits along with mince pies, coffee & chocolate mints finished off a lovely meal. Guests were able to enjoy a dance after their meal. You can see photographs of the event on Orchids at Springwood page.
Staff, volunteers & committee members had a lovely Christmas lunch on Monday 10th December over Southwick Golf Club. There are a few photographs included below.
On behalf of all staff & volunteers at the community centre, we would like to wish you all a very happy, peaceful Christmas. Thank you for all your support this year.
