The Butt Lane Community centre this afternoon held its pensioners light lunch Christmas special. Over 40 pensioners tucked into winter vegetable soup, festive sandwiches, mince pies and coffee whilst listening to Christmassy music and playing bingo. The Management Committee at the community centre are doing their best to reach out to the community to open the doors to everyone young and old.
Sylvia Dymond, a member of the management committee said: “Here at the centre we strive to offer the community a really good service but we always make sure there is an element of fun in everything we do. We welcome the support of community groups, organisations and councillors. Working together we can continue to offer fantastic events in the community for the benefit of every single person. No Christmas present would make me happier than seeing all these smiles.”
Thanks go to Councillor David Allport for doing such a fantastic job in the Kitchen and serving up this special treat. The Pensioners light lunch events will be continuing in the New Year and I will publish details of dates and times very soon. Thanks also to Jo and Elliot Ashton.
Cllr Kyle Robinson
