Due to the Covid-19 lock-down during November, we were unable to produced the December Newsletter. However, as soon as we were able to make plans to reopen we sent out an email to all those supporters whose email addresses we have. If you would like to be included on our email list please contact us and ask.
We are nearly at the end of the current lock-down and Lighthouse is making its plans to reopen on Wednesday, 2nd December at 9:30am – ready to serve you again. Once more you will be able to select your Christmas cards from our extensive range of “real” Christmas cards, all of which carry an appropriate verse from the Bible. What a wonderful way to spread the Word of God, even if it is only only one verse at a time.
We also have a range of other Christmas items and presents. There are a few Advent calendars available and some Nativity sets, but once they have gone, they have gone! Also in stock are plenty of Christmas gifts, suitable for all ages, from babies to us more senior members of society. Again, quite a few of them carry some form of Christian message, often quite discrete.
The café will be open, but with limited seating and a limited menu. We will only be serving hot and cold drinks, cake and tray-bakes (as before this current lock-down). There are only be two tables available with seating for two at each table. However, there will be a table available in the Room Downstairs which can be used and will seat four people.
Lighthouse will be extending its opening hours in the run-up to Christmas. We will be open at 9:30am each day and closing at 4:00pm on Mondays to Fridays and 1:00pm on Saturdays. The café will open at 10:00am and close at 3:00pm, except on Saturdays when it closes at 12:30pm.
Thank you to all of those who took advantage of our “click and collect” service (more a ring-up and pick-up service) during the current lock-down period. We are glad that we were able to serve at least a few of our customers while we were closed.
Penny and her team are looking forward to seeing some old faces again, and hopefully some new ones, once we reopen next week. Can you please help us by spreading the word around as we only have a few customer’s email addresses and therefore cannot reach everyone. Please feel free to foreword this email around your church fellowship.
An advanced notice, we will be closing for the Christmas period from 2:00pm on Christmas Eve, the cafe will be closing at 12:30pm and reopening on Saturday, 2nd January, 2021.
Penny, the volunteers and the trustees wish all are lovely customers all the Joy of the true meaning of Christmas, even if we are separated from our loved ones, and pray that we will move into a more normal new year. May God bless you all.
