Severnside's Big Christmas Event Success

The local community had a fantastic festive time at Severnside Housing’s Big Christmas Event held on Monday 22nd December 2014 at Belle Vue Youth Club, Rocke Street, Belle Vue, Shrewsbury.

The event was a great success with entertainment for the whole family including Christmas arts and crafts, face painting, fun and games and a special visit from Santa and his helpful elves.

Severnside and its partners (Mind, Samaritans, Citizens Advice Bureau, FAIRshare and Shropshire Community Council) were also on hand to provide help and advice on keeping safe, saving money and to offer support to those who may be vulnerable during the Christmas period.

Sue Dell, Community Development Manager at Severnside said “The Big Christmas Event was a lovely opportunity for the local community to get together to have some pre-Christmas fun and meet Santa.  Severnside and its partners also offered advice and support to people on dealing with the pressures of the festive season so that they can look forward to a happy New Year.”
