Christ­mas lunch goes down a treat


DE­CEM­BER is a so­cial month, es­pe­cially in re­gional towns and com­mu­ni­ties like Heath­cote.

More than 30 res­i­dents cel­e­brated Christ­mas at the Unit­ing Church’s monthly com­mu­nity lunch, which in­cluded all the tra­di­tional trim­mings.

“It’s a great way for peo­ple to get out and cel­e­brate, es­pe­cially if they don’t have too many op­por­tu­ni­ties oth­er­wise,” one or­gan­iser said.

The lunch was pre­pared by a team of vol­un­teers from the church, many of whom were still work­ing in the kitchen when dessert was served.

As it is for all their lunches, the Christ­mas gath­er­ing was free. At­ten­dees said they en­joyed the sense of com­mu­nity and ap­pre­ci­ated the op­por­tu­nity to have a laugh, catch up with friends and eat de­li­cious food.

All mem­bers of the Heath­cote com­mu­nity are in­vited to at­tend a lunch in 2019.
