A Very Happy Christmas Lunch!

Hungerford Christmas Lunch SantaAbout 30 guests and a small army of volunteer helpers enjoyed Christmas Day at Hungerford Methodist Church Hall. They shared a three-course roast turkey & trimmings lunch and entertainment in the form of a quiz, poetry, live recorder and saxophone music, carol singing and (of course) a visit from Father Christmas.

The lunch was organised by The Village Agents and Hungerford Methodist Church for anyone who would otherwise have been alone on Christmas Day.

Organisers Catherine Wooliston and Hilary Kelly said: “We are so grateful to everyone who has supported the lunch. Support from Hungerford Butchers, Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church, Hungerford Rotary Club, Waitrose, M & P Hardware, Hungerford Tesco and individuals who gave money meant that we could provide everything on the day without cost to our guests. Our helpers on the day and beforehand were wonderful, making sure everything ran smoothly and everyone had a lovely day.”

They added “This was a new event for Hungerford. When we started planning back in the summer, we didn’t know if there would be enough interest for it to be viable. The response has been fabulous, from helpers and guests. There was such a buzz in the Hall, the whole day was brilliant!”

Village Agents are the people to ask when you don’t know who to ask about services available in your community.  Find out more at http://www.villageagentswb.org.uk/ or phone 07717 133021
