A Cracking Christmas!
Rothwell Circle brought Christmas early to young and old in Rothwell.
First of all a few of us raided Morrisons, armed with trollies to buy items for a Christmas Day tea, Boxing Day lunch and lots of lovely treats for some of our elderly people in the area. One of our prospective members, Vickie kindly offered to wrap the fifteen hamper boxes...what a job! Then another team met up to finish them off and how lovely they looked. Lesley, Hannah and Kay hand delivered them, stopping off for cups of tea and even a ride on a stairlift!
The responses we have had have been lovely-a very worthwhile thing to do.
A few days later, it was our annual community event-Santa In The Park. The ex- Rothwell Round Table lads were once again brilliant at setting it all up for us and the bacon sandwiches and reindeer food were a success. Unfortunately, the gale force winds meant that Santa had to drive in by car but the children still enjoyed meeting him and his friends.
That night we treated our children to a carvery and pantomime at The Village, which was organised by one of our newest members, Sarah. The kids loved it and so did we, especially the innuendos!
