Many congratulations to Nela and the Kitchen Crew (Glenys, Susan, Wendy and Barbara) for an amazing Christmas lunch on the Friday before Christmas – 70 covers were served almost simultaneously, plates heaped with lots of delicious food for vegetarians and for meat-eaters – the result of days of prep and planning in advance and hours and hours of hard work on the day by all the volunteers.

Just before the meal Hilary Borthwick (from the Salvation Army) said a few words about the ‘reason for the season’ and we sang a few of our favourite carols, too, to get us in the festive spirit. Lunch was followed by a festive quiz and everyone went home cheerful and well-fed, ready for the break.
