Festive high tea at Holy Trinity
Holy Trinity church centre was the venue for a festive high tea during the Christmas holidays.
Since 2014 the group had served up a traditional Christmas day lunch for many but with Covid precautions to the fore this feast was replaced by a 'sumptious' tea party.
Food was prepared as usual by their super seasonal volunteer chef Scott Dyer.
Approximately 50 people including helpers were greeted by Mrs Santa Claus, played by Sally Simpkins, of Nailsea Tesco, and a singalong of carols was led by Sam Bryant on the piano.
The event was supported by Nailsea Town Council, The Draper Dementia Fund and Nailsea Tesco.
Organiser Lynda Dicks said: "I would like to thank everyone who came along, our guests, the helpers and the drivers, it was a joyous fun afternoon."
Everyone went home with a small gift.
Nailsea Community Group delivered more than 100 pre-Christmas meals to those who needed them, which could be eaten immediately or refrigerated and kept for Christmas Day. A spokesman said: "We were able to do this because of the generosity of Estune Lodge 6817 (Nailsea Masonic Lodge). The meals were prepared by Ivy Kitchen and delivered by our wonderful volunteers. Thank you so much to everyone involved."
Moorend Spout also operated a marvellous 2-course Christmas dinner takeaway service with door-to-door delivery for those unable to get out or cope with the 'stress and mess' of home cooking.
