Due to popularity of our Christmas Members' meals we shall again be holding two events on Tuesday 9th December at 5.30pm and Wednesday 10th December at 12.00 noon.

Please accept this invitation to come along TO ONE OR THE OTHER of our Christmas Members Meeting and Social Events, which will be held in the Wolseley Community Resource Building (behind Plymco on Wolseley Road). All members are welcome plus, partners providing this is confirmed beforehand, but it is essential ALL members MUST confirm if they will be attending by FRIDAY 28TH NOVEMBER 2014 at the latest so we can have accurate numbers before ordering the food.

We just do not have the room to fit in anyone who does not confirm in advance – these events are so popular. We may also have to ask some of you if you are able to attend the alternative date if we get too many requests for the evening event for example. The events will begin with a welcome from our Chair, Barbara Luckham and me, and then we will have one of Sylvia's famous traditional roast turkey dinners followed by Christmas pudding or trifle.

Once everyone has eaten, we can settle down for a game of prize bingo, some other entertainment, Christmas Quiz and some live music - be prepared to be surprised!! As soon as possible therefore, can all members who plan to attend one of the meals contact LOUISE at the main office on 01752 607449 and confirm if they have any special dietary requirement.

Also should you wish to attend but do not have transport, a mini-bus will be organized to collect and return you to your home after the event, please once again inform the office should you require this, so as we can make the necessary travel arrangements. Hope to see you on Tuesday 9th December OR Wednesday 10th December for some fun-filled entertainment and good company


We continue also to thank Plymouth City Council who remains our constant and major supporting partner and all our valued community organisational partners too. Thank you for making a difference for so many local people again this year. Please continue to encourage others to join the Trust as members as we do always welcome more members from our community, particularly as people move in and out of our area.

It's been quite a journey for us all so far since 1996, when Wolseley Trust was formed, but please tell people that we do still manage to have fun and have enjoyed our spirit of togetherness whatever the issues we have faced! For myself this will be my last Christmas in post as your Chief Executive so it is extra special for me, but of course, we plan to continue in the same way! On behalf of the all of the Board and staff of Wolseley Trust, therefore, Barbara, her colleagues on our Board and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at one of our Christmas event(s), but just in case you are not able to join us all in our usual end of year fun, we would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas for this year and a very happy New Year for 2015.

You or someone you know may also be interested in the Christmas Day event that again takes place at Wolseley Trust this year, thanks also to the special support of Councillor Phillipa Davey and her family, as well as support from Sylvia Wooldridge. For more information please contact Louise at the main Wolseley Trust Office.
