We had a Christmas party, a lot of preparation went into it and it was really a success. We sent invitations to a lot of people, other EVE centres and visitors from various community organisations in our area, as well as some of our neighbors from the estate. There must have been about a hundred people there and the atmosphere was very good. It was nice to see so many people in Saol. I for one met up with a few people from Ard Nua where I used to work and it was great to see them again.
We had mince pies to start with and then to eat there was sandwiches, quiche and cakes and everyone had their fill. The staff and members prepared all the eats and there was tea and coffee as well. It all went down a treat.
There was a band playing, called Miami Trice, and they really got everyone dancing and singing .There were two of them playing and singing popular songs and they finished with a couple of Christmas songs.
All in all it was a brilliant party. Everyone enjoyed themselves with the music and food. It was the first party I had been to there and was a very enjoyable one. Thanks to everyone who made the effort to come.
