Held from 12noon the event saw a group of 15 young people and families coming together to celebrate Christmas at the café located on Bevan Street East.

Attendees enjoyed a Christmas dinner and gifts, donated by Hoseasons, and plenty of Christmas music and conversation could be heard coming from the community café.

Jason Cookson, from Access Community Trust, said: 'There has been a warm and friendly atmosphere here and everybody has had an amazing time.

'Thanks go to all the volunteers for their hard work and to Hoseasons for their support- Sam's Coffee House, as a venue, certainly lends itself to occasions like this.'
