Rotarian Maggie Hardy reports on a morning of fellowship and joy at a special time of year
Guests, Rotarians and Friends came together at the beautifully decorated United Reformed Church Hall on Christmas morning to enjoy fellowship, a delicious cooked breakfast and excellent music provided by the Buckle Family and Friends.
Mother Christmas visited during the morning
and distributed presents kindly donated by Chococo and Inner Wheel.
Supported, with grateful thanks, by Corbens Estate Agents over 200 invitations were sent out across the community and increased publicity raised the profile of the traditional breakfast, set up by the club over 50 years ago and which continues to bring together those alone at Christmas, by providing transport and companionship at this special time of year.
We were delighted to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress, Cllr. Mike Bonfield and his wife Audrey to share the festivities and who also helped with the washing up!
Rotary is very grateful to the Co-op, Budgens and Costcutters for kindly donating provisions to support the breakfast, to the URC for providing the hall, and to all who helped, supported or were involved in this well received, successful morning event. We say a big “Thank you”.
