November – the month for Remembrance
The HotSpot ‘Living in The Light Party’ took place on the 28th October in Bailey Park and was well attended by the Crew and young people. Many hot sausage sandwiches were eaten and a good time was had by all. We intend to go out on Saturday 23rd December, have extra lighting in the HotSpot gazebo, play some carols and offer hot mince pies and small gift bags with the usual hot chocolate.
The 24/7 Prayer Week came and went very quickly. Ange did her inspired transformation of the chill room into two rooms! The week was very well supported with most slots being filled and those who took advantage of the quiet time there found it a calming yet uplifting experience. Jan came down from Aberystwyth to cover the night shift and several hardy souls took up the opportunity of a reflective late night or early morning slot. We had many very positive comments including our outside agency workers who found the prayer room a very inviting and restful space. Ange has now, reluctantly, dismantled the room(s) and has taken her long-overdue holidays!
Next month will be leading up to Christmas, and of course, there will be the Christmas party which will take place this year on Saturday, 16th December. We look forward to seeing anyone who would like to pop in and say ‘Hello’ and have a mince pie and/or a sausage roll, always gratefully received, kindly donated by Maureen and John Powell again this year.
Our Hotspot caravan is still out every week around Abergavenny, visiting Bailey Park, Abergavenny Castle and the ‘skate park’ on Hereford Road to meet the young people out in the community.
