We have had a fabulous time with our festive celebrations here at the centre. We began with a 'festive afternoon tea' on Sunday 17th November. Guests were welcomed with festive tunes playing and a variety of sweet & savoury treats, tea, coffee & Christmas crackers.
Our volunteers from Springwood Families hosted the annual children's Christmas party on Sunday 1st December. The children made a variety of Christmas crafts, boogied and played games courtesy of *FitnFunkey*, enjoyed some food from the buffet and visited Father Christmas in his grotto. Every child must have been very very good, as they all received a gift from Father Christmas.
The celebrations continued on Friday 13th December, with a beautiful 5 course hot & cold buffet. Our fantastic volunteer, Sue and centre manager Jennifer, worked incredibly hard to provide a feast fit for royalty. Soup and warm bread for starters, followed by a hot & cold buffet, with a selection of meats, salmon, new potatoes, pasta, savouries, salad & much more. Christmas pudding, profiteroles, trifle were amongst several options for a sweet treat, then guests enjoyed cheese & crackers and completed their lunch with tea/coffee, mince pies and mint chocolates. Guests also enjoyed a glass or two of red or white wine to accompany their meal. We also had live music provided by 'Robbie' and plenty of dancing took place. Please check out the photographs on Orchids at Springwood page.
Some of the staff, volunteers & committee members popped out for a Christmas lunch on Thursday 5th December. You can see some of the photographs below or check out our Facebook page www.facebook.com/SpringwoodCommunityCentre/ to see more photogrpahs.
On behalf of all the staff & volunteers, we wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous new year. We look forward to welcoming you back to the centre, from Thursday 2nd January 2020.
We are very excited and happy to be working closely with the new manager, Alex at Tesco Express in Lavender Road, Waterlooville. Alex has put a Christmas tree up in the store with gift tags on.
The idea is, you pick a tag off the tree and return it wrapped to Tesco. Each tag states the age and if it is a boy or girl.
Everyone returning a wrapped gift will then be put in to a prize draw for a luxury hamper. We at the centre, will ensure that these gifts go to a child who is less fortunate in our community.
If you would like further information, please pop in to Tesco Express-Lavender Road and speak to Alex.
Thank you in advance for your support.
