The kids may not have gone back to school yet but in Holbeach thoughts are already on Christmas.
South Holland District Councillor Tracey Carter and Kelly Newman, from A Country Kitchen, have joined forces to host a Christmas Dinner Party for those who need it, free of charge.
The pir say they wanted to ensure all residents have the opportunity to have a Christmas dinner, even if they live alone or are struggling financially.
Tracey said: “We appreciate that Christmas can be a very lonely time for some, so we wanted to make sure that the residents of Holbeach had the opportunity to enjoy a Christmas Dinner for free with new friends.”
The event is at the Holbeach Hub (Boston Road, opposite Tesco) on December 20, starting at 12.30pm.
A Country Kitchen, based at Minerva House in Holbeach, caters for many local residents through its meals on wheels business.
Kelly added: “We will be serving a traditional Christmas dinner, followed by a dessert and tea or coffee, free of charge for those that would benefit from this.
“We have had a great year and wanted to give something back to Holbeach residents and we are thrilled to have joined up with Tracey on this project”.
