The Annual Christmas Children’s Party held in the Vineburgh Community Centre on the 14th December, was again arranged by the Vineburgh Tenants and Residents group.
The group were keen to build on previous years’ successes and spent a lot of time and energy ensuring this party would be even better. This year was more popular than ever with 52 local children enjoying the fun, games, prizes and food. The music and games were provided by a professional children’s ‘Little and Large’. The children loved their snow machine and light show.
The groups now famous Santas grotto was as stunning as ever. Santa had assistance from Mrs Clause and Elsa from Frozen to give presents to all the children. Donated flashing LED toys also proved popular amongst all the children.
Jane Hamilton, chair of the tenants group, was delighted that so many children attended and had a great time. She hoped that this type of event and future ones would have a positive impact on the Vineburgh Community. Their Information/Fun Day held in September was also very well attended showing the fantastic support for these events from the local Vineburgh tenants and residents.
The group would like to thank the volunteers who assisted on the day, the staff of the Vineburgh Community Centre, Santa and his helpers, everyone who helped provide the gifts and the support from Cunninghame Housing Association.
