Farnham's Christmas Day Lunch 2011

Eighty guests enjoyed roast turkey and all the trimmings at the Christmas Day Lunch held at the Gostrey Centre for people who would otherwise have spent the day on their own.

112512 Xmas Lunch

The event, a tradition in the town, is held for Farnham people and provided by Farnham people and is coordinated by Churches Together in Farnham.  For the guests the lunch is a big treat on Christmas Day and for the many volunteer helpers (from all walks of Farnham life), a privilege to be involved and an important part of their own Christmas celebration.

Everyone was delighted that the Mayor & Mayoress of Waverley, Cllr Richard & Mrs Evelyn Gates were able to attend - their warm and friendly visit was very much appreciated.

Special thanks to Chris Smith for superb and magnificent cooking, to Morgan's Butchers for donating the turkeys and other delicious foods and to the Dempster Trust and individuals for generous cash donations.  Messages of appreciation are being received and for guests and volunteer helpers the day is now a happy memory.
