WCN Community Christmas Party

Brookfield Hall :: Friday, 18th December from 7:00pm

Westhoughton Community Network Christmas Bash' advert - Friday, 18th December 2015 An idea that came about when a local venue offered the premises for the 4th anniversary WCN meeting in August. Whilst there is a convivial atmosphere at WCN meetings, it is business-like, with the social interactions and networking adding to what we do, it was felt a social occasion could bring community folk together during the festive season for a dress-up occasion with good food and some entertainment - the idea of a party could appeal to smaller groups looking to get together for a Christmas meal.

The venue is Brookfield Hall. Located not far from the town centre, and is a large-size, premier venue for meetings, weddings and banquets, serving good food with a bar. Brookfield Hall is much used by our community groups; our hosts being very supportive of community activities.

The WCN package is £25 with welcome drink, 3-course meal, mince pies and coffee, and disco entertainment for dancing until midnight. There is a choice of to cater for a variety of palettes.

Ron has been featured on X Factor wowing the judges, not only with his singing but his infectious personality.

Whilst initially offered to WCN groups, the intention was to open the party to the wider community for a 'Christmas Bash' on your doorstep. We welcome smaller groups from the community, local business to join us for this festive season get-together.

Our first social gathering has now taken place. The venue did us proud - it looked classy, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. Entertainment was provided by Ron Davis who enthralled the audience, backed by Gary our DJ who kept us dancing until late. An occasion to dress up and be amongst good company. A splendid time was had by all - both from WCN and the wider community. We may do it again.
