Activities over Summer at Trinity Church
Holiday at Home has proved to be popular and is eagerly anticipated by many, with some of our guests coming back year after year. For those who would otherwise not have a “holiday” it is an enjoyable break from the normal routine.
This is an annual event in August which takes place at The Eversfield Centre. It is especially for older people who cannot get out much. There is a varied programme which includes talks on a wide variety of topics, music to listen to and sing along to, quizzes and games. The week provides an opportunity for people to socialise and enjoy conversation in a convivial atmosphere. Refreshments are served during the day, including home cooked lunches and afternoon tea with cakes. Transport in family cars can be arranged.
Holiday at Home took place this year from 19 – 23 August at The Eversfield Centre, our 10th anniversary year. It was an enjoyable and successful week. Over the course of the week there was a total of some 200 attendances by participants, carers and helpers, with numbers each day between 36 and 41. In a warm and friendly atmosphere we enjoyed listening to some good speakers and entertainers, eating delicious home cooked lunches and tucking into afternoon tea. Time for socialising is an important part of Holiday at Home and each day there was a buzz of conversation and sharing of stories.
Our group of drivers, kitchen teams and helpers enabled the week to go smoothly and we also appreciated the support in so many ways of members and friends of Trinity Church, of other Mill Hill Churches and of Churches Together in Mill Hill.
Our thanks to all who made this another memorable Holiday at Home.
Holiday at Home 2020
After much discussion we decided that because of the Covid-19 pandemic it is not possible this August to hold our usual Holiday at Home week. We know this will be a disappointment to many. But we hope there will be other possibilities in the future.
