We are also doing filled rolls or sandwiches, scones with Clotted cream and Jam and cheese and biscuits to TAKEAWAY . They will need to be ordered the day before you require them, and the Kitchen staff will freshly prepare them ready for you to take home the following day.

We will now NOT be storing any items in the fridge or freezer that have been purchased from the shops as we have had a number of issues that have arisen so please be mindful of this when purchasing your goods.

We are now selling a variety of items on our ‘Sales Trolley’, wrapping paper, sellotape, bingo dabbers, age birthday cards, tissues etc., please let us know if you would like to be able to purchase any other items from here and we will do our best to provide them at a very reasonable price.

Don’t forget to purchase your Christmas goods from the table in the entrance wrapping paper,calenders,crackers,Diaries etc at fantastic bargain prices.

We have some exciting events happening this month: we have the Christmas light switch on Friday 2nd December at 5pm come and join us for Tea and mince pies after and Sunday 18th December we are having a Sunday Lunch instead of a Christmas Tea please see separate menu lunch is served at 12pm and we will be having afternoon entertainment all for £5. We have our fantastic Entertainment programme Patrick Webber, Tracey for Skills and Games, Godalming Band,St Hilarys School Choir, Den and Don,Grandads Aloud and much much more. PLEASE NOTE 12th-16th December we will have entertainment every day. It takes a large amount of work for us to organise entertainment and we will be coming around asking what entertainment you would like as it takes a large amount of money out of our budget and it seems that a majority of you do not wish to join in or partake in activities which is a waste, so we would appreciate it if everyone stays in the lounge for the duration of the entertainment and the servery will not open until 2-2.15pm.

We have been successful as one of the Co-operative charities so please support us by buying lots of goods, you need to register your Co-Op card online or call 08000234708 and requesting your 1% of your shopping goes to Age Concern Farncombe.

Thank you to everyone that came and supported the Christmas Fair we raised a fantastic £1068.45 and it is still ongoing.

I would like to announce we have appointed a new minibus driver as Chris is retiring at the end of the month his name is Bob so please welcome him.

The day centre will be closing on Friday 16th December and reopening again on Tuesday 3rd January so I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and Happy New Year!
