|Christmas at Community House|
It’s the festive season and we had a very busy one here at Community House! Lots of families came along to enjoy creative crafts, East Durham Creates activities including VoiceOver and the Pan Hag, hot chocolate and a delicious buffet tea, a fabulous (fake) roaring fireplace and the chance to visit Santa. Best of all it was all absolutely FREE and provided as part of the Colour Your Life project with generous support and funding from East Durham Homes.
Each child was able to meet Santa Claus in his grotto within our Reception area and got to pick out a gift as well as being given some reindeer sparkle to help guide Rudolph to his parking spot on Christmas Eve!
We made sure everyone was well fed with a lovely buffet as well as fun freebies including puzzles provided by East Durham Homes. There was information, leaflets and the opportunity to sign up for the really exciting range of courses that will be starting as part of Colour Your Life in 2016.
Lindsey Wood, Deputy Manager of East Durham Trust, said “Christmas at Community House gave families from the surrounding community the opportunity to enjoy a range of Christmas crafts together from making tree decorations to Christmas cards and Santa’s beards. It was great to see both parents and children alike having so much fun.”
A big thanks to everyone who took part, to East Durham Homes for making it possible and of course to Santa for taking time out of his busy schedule to come along!
