Christmas gets off to a musical start in Wanstead Park

A drop-in Christmas family event was held at the Tea Hut in Wanstead Park on Sunday (23 December 2018).

A large crowd responded to an invitation for brunch accompanied by cheerful brass music, as well as carols to join in and some seasonal readings.

It was very successful with wonderful support from musicians, readers and singers. There were well over 150 people singing lustily along with lots of children and dogs and a considerable quantity of mud.

Jennie and the Tea Hut staff looked fantastic, in their dancing Santa hats, and the queue for refreshments was massive. £281.00 was raised for homeless charity Shelter.
