Holiday at Home
Holiday at Home is a week of good company, good food and good fun aimed at retired people. It is held at Dundonald Church Raynes Park during the last week of August.

The day starts at 10.30 with coffee and cake. There are various fun workshops where visitors can try out something new. We will eat a meal together in the middle of the day and in the afternoon there are various workshops and activities going on, as well as a short talk. The day finishes about 4pm.

There will be a range of things to do so visitors can get involved as much or as little as they like; if they want to just sit and read a newspaper, that’s fine!

The event will run from Tuesday 26th August to Friday 30th August 2024 this year– guests can come for one day or the whole thing.

There is no need to book.

There is no charge for this event but guests are welcome to make a donation for lunch if they wish.
