SALVATION ARMY TO HOST FREE SPRING COMMUNITY MEAL

salvationarmyspringmealThe Salvation Army are wanting to show that kindness lasts all year round, not just at Christmas, by hosting a free community meal for residents on the Isle of Wight.

The local Salvation Army in Pyle Street, Newport are extending their hospitality and putting on a Spring Celebration and Community Meal on Sunday 29th March at their hall in Pyle Street at 13:15.

Due to a generous donation they are able to provide, free of charge, a hot, sit-down, 2-course meal, followed by some light entertainment.

Corps Officer, Lieutenant Lillian Bean, said:

“Christmas seems a long time away – but we would like to show that kindness lasts all year round, not just at Christmas”.

Anyone who attended the Christmas meal are welcome, as well as any ‘new folk’ who would like to attend – the idea is to get the community together just to share some time and friendship.

Prior to the meal there will be a Christian Worship Service commencing at 10:30, which everyone is welcome to attend weather they are coming for the meal or not, and the Salvation Army Band will play in St. James’s Square at 12 midday to help get the community in the mood for celebrating.
