13|12|17 - Elderly Residents Christmas Luncheon Club

An enormous success the luncheon guests said about the recent Christmas lunch held on 13th December with over 60 elderly people having their lunch organised by Vic Martin and his Team. The Canford Heath Neighbourhood Watch were there serving plates of hot Christmas Turkey with all the trimmings which also included fresh fruit salad and Christmas pudding. Dressed for the occasion David, Sandra, Vickie and Sean from CHNW were on hand to have their photo taken alongside Vic Martin before the lunch started. This is now the second year that CHNW have provided gifts for those attending and each 'goody' bag contained bars of chocolate and a large packet of biscuits. All received with many thanks from those attending.

Afterwards, Christmas carols were sung in the Church followed by a raffle of which all participants received a prize. What a lovely day.

Once again the event was kindly hosted on Canford Heath by St. Paul's Church.
