On Friday 15th December the Holmfirth group plus specially invited guests got together for a Christmas lunch. Delicious roast turkey donated by Flowery Fields at Hade Edge (thank you Kev!), together with roasties, veg, stuffing & gravy donated by Morrisons (thank you Rachel and Steve!), were prepared for us by our superstar cook Laura. This was followed by a choice of puds including trifles made by Ann (thank you!), and mince pies & coffee for those with some space!
We were then joined by Mrs Brook and 2 of her pupils from Holme Village School, who had very kindly clubbed together to buy gifts to add to Santa’s ‘Friend to Friend’ sack, and had even designed their own wrapping paper and tags! What a very thoughtful school! Santa sent his stunt double (thank you Isaac!) to hand out gifts for everyone.
It was lovely to see so many friends come together and enjoy each other’s company, and we raised a glass to Margaret, Lise, Barbara and Louie who weren’t able to join us.
Merry Christmas all of you, and here’s to a Happy and Healthy New Year.
