A GROUP of 40 older people from across the district enjoyed a festive feast on Saturday when members of Bromsgrove Youth Council prepared a Christmas lunch for them, writes Demi Andrews.

The young people from the group, based at the Youth Hub at Bromsgrove Baptist Church, cooked, served, waited on tables and made decorations for the event.

The Bromsgrove community contributed everything that was needed, from the turkey and other festive food to stockings, presents and crackers.

Entertainment was provided by ‘The Hub Choir’ which got everyone into the Christmas spirit and a singalong was enjoyed by all.

Saz, Bromsgrove Youth and Community hub co-ordinator, said: “I am so proud of our young people, for working so well together.”

Young people’s worker Louise Hall added: “I feel so honoured to have worked with the team and to have been part of such an amazing day which was all we wanted and more.”
