News | Christmas Lunch 2016 | St George's Church

As we are in National Lockdown and are currently asked to 'stay at home', the services from St George's will be on line at 10.45 each Sunday and the church will be closed for public worship until the situation improves. Service sheets are on 'Whats on' page of this website. The PCC will consider the situation and when to reopen for worship at their meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. A letter from the Wakefield Medical Officer of Health is in the information below. Please pray for our community and particularly those who are working to care for those who are ill and those who are providing vaccinations as well those suffering from the wide ranging effects of Covid 19. Keep safe and help each other to keep well.

Christmas Lunch 2016

Christmas lunch this year was the 'best ever' ....according to some of our elderly friends who have come along for years and only needed an after dinner nap to make it perfect. Thanks must go to the many people who contributed before the event by making table decorations, place cards, menus, peeling the mountain of sprouts and potatoes and to Daniel who masterminded the kitchen. The partnership with Age UK this year was really good and enabled us to reach more elderly people. Other guests included new friends from the Tuesday drop in lunch and of course there were the regulars for whom this is an annual event. Our gang of helpers were amazing and their range of skills was better than thank you all very much.

The meal was free to all thanks to donations from Sainsbury's Marsh Way, St George's Centre, St George's Church and many individuals who provided extras and gifts for everyone. A great day. Especial thanks must go to Susan who has spent weeks preparing and planning the event so that it worked so well for all concerned.Truly an event to remember.
