Our special event is a social, warm and inclusive event. We welcome people in wheelchairs, people with Dementia, and we’d like to reach isolated people in our community.

If you’d like to be involved as a musician, a baker, a dancer, or can or just come for fun, please get in touch. We are also looking for anyone who can lend their skills in knitting, crocheting and any other crafts-based activities to the event.

If you know someone who would benefit from such an event, please let us know as we may be able to help them get to us.

Admittance is now free, but you can make a donation towards the baking if you feel you would like to support it.
