Alton Webteam: December 2015
Our fortnightly Tuesday Church Lunch Club held its annual Christmas Dinner on 15th December.
With over 60 people, regular lunch club members and some guests, enjoyed great company and as always, great food. Led by Christine Allan and her loyal band of helpers, a delicious Christmas meal was served — roast turkey and all the trimmings, followed by home-made trifle, a cup of tea and chocolates.
Carols were then sung and the familiar Christmas passages read.
Our thanks go to Sainsbury's and Debby Bridger for providing the turkey and the Christmas crackers.
Also a huge "thank-you" to the children and staff of Nightingale Class from the Butts Primary School — for the Christmas cards they made that were given to all at the lunch club. The cards were greatly appreciated and there were plenty of comments on the quality of the hand-writing and the drawings and pictures.
Lunch club resumes in the new year on Tuesday January 12th
