Community Christmas Lunch 2016

On Sunday 11 December the School held a Christmas lunch for local community groups, hosted by a group of 20 St John’s pupils in the Dining Hall.

Good cheer and Christmas spirit were in abundance at the lunch. Guests were invited to attend via a number of local charities and groups including The Beeches, The British Legion, Contact the Elderly, Fairfield Centre and QEF, among others, to enjoy an afternoon of festive fun and frivolity.

Guests at the lunch were treated to a traditional and delicious turkey dinner (complete with sprouts!), and also enjoyed mulled wine and a Christmas quiz.

A brass ensemble played some Christmas music and were later joined by an impromptu choir who, along with the assembled guests, sang a selection of Christmas carols.

The School’s Head of Community Service, Louise Ellis-Barrett, commented: “The Christmas lunch is testament to the generous nature of St John’s pupils and their enjoyment of helping those in the local community. Great fun was had by all and we look forward to doing it all again in 2017.”
