Christmas Drop-in 9 December 2023

On Saturday 9th December we held a Christmas drop-in in the North Chapel at Ryde Cemetery.  The centre was very well decorated with festive lights and garlands. The wet and windy start to the day didn’t dampen the spirits nor stop people coming out. We had about 30 people, some visitors as well as regular members, a good turnover which kept the centre full for the whole 4 hours. We served home-made cakes, mince pies, mulled wine as well as tea and coffee. The Christmas music, chatter and laughter made for an enjoyable time for us all.
