Spend this Christmas in good company

CHRISTMAS, while a time of family gatherings and happy times for most can be lonely for others.

The Woolgoolga Uniting Church will be holding Christmas lunch and people from all walks of life are invited to make sure they have a fun day.

Val Moase from Woolgoolga Uniting Church said "we just want it to be a day where people aren't at home feeling lonely."

It is an open house lunch where people don't need to bring anything and are able to call in advance to let the church know they are coming or alternatively just show up on the day.

"Everyone should have something special on Christmas day," Val said.

In the past, people attending have been made up of backpackers, single people and even husbands and wives who don't have other family around.

A traditional Christmas lunch will be served with salads and a Christmas pudding at noon on Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25.

There will be entertainment with singers, guitarists, quizzes and fun on the day to make it an enjoyable, festive day for all.

To let the Woolgoolga Uniting Church know you'd like to attend, call 6654 1887 or Val on 6649 2657.
