Pot Luck Meal

The advocacy group who meets on Wednesday afternoons helped to prepare a pot luck meal in The Chrysalis Theatre on Wednesday 21th December. It was called a pot luck meal because it was up to each house to bring something to eat. Mother and Father Christmas did an opening before the meal and there was also dancing afterwards.
