News from The Peel: Festive Fun

The Peel ended the year with some Christmas celebrations for both the adult and youth members. Both had their own Christmas parties which are always loads of fun!

Yesterday the adults were entertained by children from St Peter and St Paul’s primary school. They came in to the centre to sing carols and give gifts, and then chatted to the Peel’s older members.

The Youth Club Christmas party is always something the young people really look forward to. They had a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings including Christmas crackers. Then they received some fantastic presents, kindly donated by ELBA (East London Business Alliance).
