Do you realise that there are only six weeks to go until Christmas? It seems only yesterday I was hanging up my stocking and decorating the tree. Where on earth did the year go?

I definitely seem to have a touch of the ‘Bah Humbugs’ about me this year. What about you? Do you need a bit of motivation? Could you do with a kick start?

Well, luckily I’ve got just the thing to get us all into the Christmas spirit. On Saturday, 30th November at Norwest we’ll be ‘Stepping into Christmas’. It will be a light-hearted evening of fun and games.

We’ll be snowballing snowmen and rolling Christmas puds, there will be some guessing games and easy quizzes with an American supper and a Christmas-themed raffle. The bar will open at 7.30 p.m., so you can get the drinks in for a prompt 8 p.m. start. Please come along and see if you can help me to shrug off my Christmas blues and get into the festive spirit. You never know, we may even get a visit from the great man himself – but that, of course, is only if you’ve all been good!
