Emsworth and Southbourne District Community Christmas

This Christmas in Emsworth you don’t have to be alone.  Members of the local community in the Emsworth and Southbourne district are coming together on Christmas day to offer companionship, laughter, festive food and entertainment for anyone on their own on that day.

The organisers Annabel Smith, Jessica Bateman and Kathy Adams who are local residents have teamed up together to offer a free Christmas day celebration in the heart of Emsworth. This local community project has been born out of the recognition that Christmas day can be a lonely day for many and a belief that no one should be alone on Christmas day (unless they want to be).

This is a chance for people to make new friends creating bonds in the community that can last further than the single day. Come and enjoy other people’s company, share the true meaning of Xmas with others.

Anyone on their own can come, it’s not dependent on age or religion, you may be retired, bereaved, separated from family or simply alone.

We are looking for volunteers on the day and in the run up to the event who want to join in the fun and contribute to its creation. Help is needed with transportation to and from the venue, helping in the kitchen, serving Xmas dinner, carol singing, making teas and coffee, joining in the entertainment.

This is a new venture and the organisers are looking for support from local businesses and residents to donate food and money. This is a not for profit event.

The day will involve transport to and from the event if needed, a 2 course lunch, singing Christmas carols, you can watch the Queen and play a festive team quiz.

Do you know of anyone who would enjoy this day? Those alone can be quite isolated and need encouragement. To nominate someone, to volunteer, to contribute or if you have any other enquiries telephone 01243 373789
