Seniors' Christmas Lunch 10th December 2017


On the 10th December 2017 the Parish Council hosted its now traditional Christmas Lunch for the Senior Citizens of Kelvedon Hatch.

We started off with 82 (a record number) booked in for the lunch, but no one expected the heavy overnight snowfall on the morning of the event which presented many of our guests, our caterer, entertainer and taxi driver with travelling problems. Many of our guests had to cancel, but the 56 brave souls who tackled the elements were rewarded with a lovely afternoon! The 56 who attended enjoyed a three course Christmas Lunch with wine, sherry and all the trimmings.

Entertainment for the afternoon was provided by Martin Phillips who provided a good selection of songs that had our guests singing and dancing throughout the afternoon. The entertainment was only interrupted for the drawing of tickets for the free raffle. Raffle prizes were in abundance thanks to donations of prizes and sponsorship from local businesses and individuals.

The Parish Council wishes to thank all the local businesses and individuals that contributed by way of prizes donated or sponsorship. Our thanks to:
