A free Christmas day meal is on offer to those who would otherwise spend the day alone.

The lunch will be served at Gaywood Church Rooms at noon and the event will go on until 4pm.

Places are limited so anyone who would like to attend, or who knows someone who would appreciate an invitation, should contact the Rev Julie Boyd (pictured) on 01553 770952.

There is no charge for the lunch but is essential to book. Transport is also on offer to those who need it.
