The members of Sherburn Visiting Scheme enjoyed a fantastic Christmas Lunch at the Millstones & Mill 67 restaurant in Harrogate. We try to hold a Christmas Party once a year as it is a great way to get everyone together to enjoy a little bit of festive fun before another year comes to a close.
Millstones & Mill 67 was the perfect venue for our party as they offered ample space, a private par, a dance floor and a beautiful garden area for our members to thoroughly enjoy.
Sherburn Visiting Scheme arrived at Millstones at around 11:00 am and was greeted with a lovely morning coffee from the Millstone’s staff. Our members love to shop, so after our morning coffee, we took our time to relax and browse around their well-stocked gift & farm shop which had a variety of choice.
Around noon, we headed to the dining area which was set out in large round tables that were numbered with festive centrepieces. Our members each had their own festive headpiece which they enjoyed putting on and posing for the camera! After a short wait, we were then served our delicious three-course lunch, which Sherburn Visiting Scheme all thoroughly enjoyed!
After our three-course lunch, our members took to the dance floor with Millstone’s resident entertainer performing on stage for an hour of music, dancing and sing-a-longs. For those that weren’t able to participate, there was plenty more tea, coffee, mince pies and a variety of cakes to keep them occupied! Millstones also held a fun Christmas Raffle and held a game that involved a cash prize!
The scheme is becoming under increasing pressure due to the increased number of people using the service and the retirement of some of our longstanding drivers. The need for new drivers is vital for the service to continue.
