Christmas Day - Nantwich Methodist Church, Hospital Street

Churches in Nantwich are teaming up once again to hold a Christmas Day Lunch for people who would otherwise be on their own.

And Street restaurant on Welsh Row is running a similar scheme for hard-up families after last year’s success.

It will take place from 11.30am on December 25 for 1pm lunch at the Methodist Church, Hospital Street, Nantwich.

The lunch will be followed by entertainment and will end around 3.15pm.

Rev Malcolm Lorimer, of Nantwich Methodist, said: “We are happy to provide transport for all who wish to use it and we look forward to the pleasure of your company as our guest.”

The churches involved include Nantwich Methodist Church, St Mary’s Church Nantwich, Broad Lane Methodist Church, St Mary’s Church Acton, Market Street Baptist/URC Church, Elim Pentecostal Church, and St Anne’s Roman Catholic Church.

The scheme follows kind-hearted bosses of Street Nantwich restaurant.

For the second year running, they are opening their doors on Christmas Day for families with children who have had a difficult and “need a bit of love and kindness at Christmas”.

The day is completely free and adults and children get gifts, food and entertainment.

Manager Natalie Hand said: “We are proudly working alongside Cheshire Without Abuse, but we need to spread the word so we can reach as many families as possible!

“Are you or do you know a social worker or care worker that can help us also reach the right people?

“If so, please get in touch.

“We had so many wonderful donations last year every child had a huge sack of presents. We are expecting them again this year.

“This is what made it extremely special and it would be amazing to re-create this!”
