Here’s hoping this Christmas will be much cheerier than last year. For some, however, it will again be sad or painful. So we need to try and make the best of it and spare a thought for anyone we know who isn’t as fortunate. A positive attitude will help to keep us healthy and safe. We have much to be grateful for. We live in a lovely village with lots of support, a shop full of volunteers who serve the community with a friendly smile and a manager who goes above and beyond for her customers. Metfield Stores’ Christmas and New Year opening times below.
You can offer help or donations to all sorts of causes at any time of the year, but Christmas can be an especially difficult time for those without enough food, clothes or anywhere warm to sleep. let alone a chance to be with their families. Both the Waveney Valley Food Bank and Crisis at Christmas are very active at this time so all donations are very welcome.
If you want to join with others to celebrate the occasion, see the times of Christmas Services at St John the Baptist Church. The Christingle service is at 4pm this afternoon and there’s a family service on Christmas morning.
And, of course, we can’t really finish without mentioning Covid! In case anyone is confused by the government’s updated Covid guidelines, below is the advice Metfield Stores is giving to staff and volunteers, but it applies to us all. Please stay safe everyone!
