Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - News - SAM KILMIS­TER

A Christ­mas feast in Feild­ing will help put a smile on the faces of some de­serv­ing peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

The event is be­ing run by the Feild­ing and Makino Ro­tary clubs, Manch­ester House, St John’s Par­ish and Sal­va­tion Army.

Makino Ro­tary Club mem­ber Nigel Rams­den said the lunch was put on for mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who were dis­ad­van­taged or may spend Christ­mas alone.

He said the draw­card of the Christ­mas lunch was great com­pany, Christ­mas cheer and food.

‘‘The day will start with a Christ­mas Day ser­vice at 9.30am, fol­lowed by a morn­ing tea. There’s noth­ing overly re­li­gious about it, apart from the churches have helped pre­pare it,’’ Rams­den said.

‘‘We’re look­ing for vol­un­teers to help with the cook­ing of food and wrap­ping of Christ­mas presents, pro­vided by the Sal­va­tion Army.’’

Ev­ery­one at the feast will re­ceive a present from Santa, Rams­den said.

This year the lunch will cater for 80 to 100 peo­ple.

On the menu is roast ham, chicken, lamb and veg­eta­bles.
