THE MEM­BERS of the Young at Heart group at St. Peter’s parish got into the Christ­mas spirit as they held their an­nual Christ­mas din­ner.

To top the ic­ing on the cake and prove that good will and gen­eros­ity is still alive and well this fes­tive sea­son, the Land Scouts who are based at the har­bour, pre­sented the group with a very gen­er­ous gift.

Fol­low­ing a re­cent Mid­night Hike the scouts raised a whop­ping €700 and the se­nior pa­trol leader, Ni­cola Car­roll, pre­sented Young at Heart mem­ber, Molly Gun­ning, with the gen­er­ous cheque.

The kind gift from the scouts went to­wards mak­ing the Christ­mas din­ner pos­si­ble this year.

Once the pre­sen­ta­tion was fin­ished, over 50 Young at Heart mem­bers, rang­ing from 50 years old and up­wards, en­joyed a de­li­cious three- course Christ­mas din­ner. Un­for­tu­nately there was just turkey, no ham, but ev­ery­body was fully sat­is­fied with the tasty meal.

Spe­cial guest on the evening was of course Santa Claus who de­liv­ered a very spe­cial gift for all the mem­bers.

Mu­sic on the night was pro­vided by Joe Bol­lard who cer­tainly got the crowd go­ing with some sea­sonal tunes and golden oldies.

Some of the guests even made their way to the stage to per­form their favourite song and the group took this as the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to prac­tice for their up­com­ing Christ­mas carol ser­vice.

A great night was had by every­one and it was the per­fect way to fin­ish up the year.

The Young at Heart group meet in St. Peter’s Parish Hall ev­ery Fri­day at 12.30 p.m. for lunch and bingo.

At the Young at Heart Christ­mas Party were He­len Tal­bot, Pa­tri­cia Hicks, Liz O’Grady and Carmel Fox.
