One minute the children are going Back to School, then we’re out Trick or Treating before it’s suddenly Bonfire Night. Everyone tells you it’s too soon to be thinking about Christmas then suddenly every TV advert is a mini Christmas movie and we’re panicking we have so much to do and not enough time.
And then it’s over. The children are back to school and Easter Eggs are appearing on the supermarket shelves before we’ve even had Valentines Day.
Is there anyone out there who believes the stress and financial pressure on many people at this time is a good thing? I doubt it! But what we all seem to love about the Festive Season is how it brings people together, the children are so excited, people seem more likely to smile and chat to strangers, and of course there’s lots of good food and time to sit down round a table and enjoy it in good company.
We have lots going on at The Kitchen over the next few weeks. Each event is designed to bring people together, encourage community and conversation, and also bring some excitement for the children to enjoy in the run up to the big day.
Please join us at some or all of these events. We would love to see you!
