Having a Wonderful Christmastime at Patchway Community Centre
On Wednesday 14th December, Patchway Community Centre played host to the Wednesday Lunch Club’s first Christmas Dinner since returning to the centre and it was a great success.
Over 60 hot Christmas lunches were prepared for the lunch club as well as some special guests from Patchway Town Council and the staff at Patchway Centre Pre-School and Tots.
The day was a success with everyone enjoying the delicious food on offer. Christmas cheer was spreading when Zoe from Mini Concerts delivered an amazing set of Christmas classics which had everyone up from the tables and dancing in the hall!
A free raffle thanks to Patchway Community Centre and Patchway Town Council took place along with a raucous game of bingo to finish off the afternoon’s festivities.
Mayor of Patchway, Cllr Dayley Lawrence, who was a special guest commented that ‘It was so lovely to see our older generation in Patchway come together and celebrate Christmas in this way especially in a post-pandemic world. Thanks must go to Tina, Barbara, Dawn, John, Roger, Marion and Marilyn for their unwavering support of the Lunch Club giving up so many hours each Wednesday to help cook and serve these delicious meals. This is such a valuable resource to our community and I’m so glad it is a success’.
