Here is information about what is happening in Brunswick this Christmas, and what is on hold until the New Year.

Elizabeth Yarwood Court

S4B scheme manager Donna Shaw, will once again be opening the doors of Elizabeth Yarwood Court for people living in Brunswick to come along and keep warm during the winter months.

Donna said: “The communal lounge is kept warm and cozy throughout the winter. It is a large area with plenty of chairs, so it makes sense to invite people in and make the best use of it.

“And with rising home energy costs, people are finding it very difficult to heat their home and eat a warm meal, so if anyone is in this situation, they are more than welcome to come in and join us”.

The communal lounge is open every weekday between 8am and 6pm. There are free hot drinks on offer and light snacks available for a small charge.

During the Christmas period the lounge will not be available on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th December and Monday 2nd January.
