The Home Alone Christmas meal 2015 was held at St Jame's Church hall again this year thanks to the organisation of Vivienne Morris and a hoard of volunteers and helpers who put lots of time, effort and preparation into making it happen.
Christmas Eve was a hive of activity as many church members met to prepare vegetables and lay tables ready for the big day.
Christmas Day saw approx 45 people come through the door for a meal, with many others turning up just to help serve and clear-up. The hall was full of laughter and provided companionship for many people who would otherwise have been alone. The food was expertly cooked in the kitchen by several volunteers including John Noone and Lee, they worked tirelessly to provide the important meal. He even made the soup and a special hot fruit punch which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
The 'washer-up' Pip seemed to be tied to the sink but persevered to the end !
There was the usual Christmas Quiz for entertainment, and a Christmas present for everyone at the end, as well as a very generous raffle, which saw everyone getting a prize.
This is indeed a very important Christmas event which hopefully will be able to continue. A big thank-you to all the wonderful planners, contributors, and volunteers who made it happen.
