Christmas Dinner at Wesley Memorial

We cooked our own Christmas Dinner this year, using both kitchens at Wesley Memorial. Several kind volunteers peeled potatoes, carrots, parsnips and sprouts, kept an eye on the real Christmas pudding kindly made for us, and – supervised by Mary – made sure everything went into ovens or onto stoves at the right time.
Helen organised games to keep everyone entertained.
We were very pleased to be joined by some of the members of Wesley Memorial Church who have supported us over the years.

The Christmas pudding

Christmas Bingo

Members contribute a range of chocolatey prizes, and we play Bingo, to redistribute them.
We also have some non-chocolate prizes for those who non-chocolate eaters.
The game is sociable, provides practice in recognising numbers, and for those of us who are learning BSL, an opportunity to practice signing numbers.
We also celebrated a birthday, with a thoughtfully chosen, non-chocolate, birthday cake.

Night out at Donnington Social Club

Once again we had a warm welcome at Donnington Social Club, where we were chatted and played snooker.

We even had a visitor who had come all the way from Sweden to see Phab in action !

Christmas Crafts

We enjoyed making a range of Christmas items, from cards to bracelets.

Bracelets were very popular
So were angels !
