On Saturday 10th December, residents of The Arbour enjoyed some festive fun at our Christmas event. It was a great opportunity for neighbours to get together and enjoy seasonal refreshments whilst listening to carols by a local choir called The Sound Collective.

Organised by L&Q to spread the Christmas spirit, residents donated new toys and gifts for children in care to Kids Inspire, an Essex-based charity making Christmas day special and full of joy for children who may not otherwise receive a Christmas present.

Starting at 2pm, the neighbours came together and enjoyed a free, creative wreath-making workshop hosted by Helen Sheard Floral Designs, whilst children decorated some festive biscuits. Guests enjoyed warming drinks alongside tasty mince pies and chatted with neighbours at the very first Christmas event for The Arbour.
