A hugely popular Twixmas event for seniors is returning to Easthampstead. Turkey and Tinsel is two days of fun that includes Christmas festivities, food, and entertainment such as bingo, quizzes, arts and crafts and movie clips and runs on December 30 and New Year’s Eve.
People looking for some peace and quiet among all the fun can enjoy a relaxation room which includes massage chairs for a bit of pampering.
It takes place at Easthampstead Baptist Church (EBC) in South Hill Road on Tuesday, December 30 and New Year’s Eve itself, Wednesday, December 31.
Sessions run from 10am to 4pm and the church’s event is free, although it says it welcomes donations.
Simon Lace, seniors minister leader at EBC, said: “If you fancy a couple of days of fun, food and festive frolics, come and join us for our annual Turkey & Tinsel celebration.
“It’s brought to you by the same team that puts on EBC’s summer Holiday at Home and our monthly Lunch Club. This is a lovely, fun-filled event for older people that puts glitter in the air, a song in your heart and lots of yummy food in your tummy.”
As well as the New Year focus, Simon promises a visit from Santa, Christmas carols and some delicious lunches.
“There will also be one or two special guests… and some serious, spiritual and saintly moments,” he promised.
With budgets being tightened and bills rising, Simon says that EBC is keen as many people as possible can come.
He said: “We are always keen to ensure no-one is excluded through lack of funds, so there is no cost to worry about either.
“If you would like to make a donation, this is always welcome and will go towards our ongoing ministry for older people throughout the year ahead.”
Simon added that places are limited and should be booked.
He said: “We also need to know if
you have any special dietary requirements and, if you are really unable to get to us without help, we
may be able to arrange a lift.”
Places can be booked by calling the church on 01344 487744 or visiting the office. For details, visit www.ebc-bracknell.org
