Christmas has arrived at Home-Start West Berkshire and we like to celebrate in style and this year, thanks to ASDA Basingstoke, we were able to do just that!

Our Family Christmas Party is the event of the year and not to be missed. We were able to secure our usual venue for our party at the Frank Hutchins Hall in Thatcham. There was plenty of space for our energetic little ones to let off some steam and for our fantastic entertainer Crazy M to do her stuff! She had plenty to entertain with a whopping 40 children and 55 adults! She sang, danced, juggled a snowballs and even brought along a very special fluffy little friend, a rabbit called Stew!

Thanks to the brilliant organisational skills of Lucy, our cook and Clare from the office everyone was well fed with a lovely party tea. Suddenly, after lunch, there was a big crash on the roof and lots of hoof scrapping sounds and who should appear but the big jolly man himself! Father Christmas was very pleased to be able to provide Christmas presents for all the children thanks to the very kind donations from the elves at Micro Focus.

From all the team at Home-Start we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Our offices are closed from 2.30pm on 21st December until 2nd January 2019.
