Christmas is Here!

Dec 07 2016

It’s that time of year again!

The neighbourhood group took time out of their busy ‘prop building schedule’ for PEP’s pantomime, to have some fun and decorate the Christmas tree for the office. They managed to use every decoration in the box and created an amazing seasonal masterpiece.

 It must be Christmas!

Neighbourhood Group Autumn Walk

The Tuesday Neighbourhood Group took advantage of the beautiful November weather to go for a nature walk at the Cammo Estate.
