BFRA Christmas Party 2012

On Sunday 16th DeceBFRA Xmas 2012 032mber, Brook Farm Residents Association held their very first Children’s Christmas Party at The Fromus Centre, Seaman Avenue, Saxmundham.

There were around 40 children with their parents or guardians who saw them become creative with all sorts of craft work including making Christmas biscuits and decorating baubles. Father Christmas turned up with free gifts and even little elves helped out. They can be seen (Molly Gates, Alicia Hailey with Kylan Hailey) just before the day got going.

The scheme was thought up by Tracy Brinded from the BFRA committee whBFRA Xmas 2012 013o said that if all goes well, she will be happy to run a further party at Christmas 2013 and involve even more children.

The funds (Approx £500) for the day, came from BFRA hard earned money, which was made up from Music Nights and subscriptions from the year.

BFRA would like to thank The Fromus Centre for renting the rooms at such a reasonable rate enabling us to bring together a number of people all under one roof.  We shall certainly return for further events in the year.

Although not as well attended as previous Music Nights, Growler went down a storm! If you didn’t go you missed a real treat as we had some excellent feedback from all.

We are hoping to run another event with the same band in Spring 13. Keep a lookout on this website for further details for a chance to see this fantastic band.

Soon Sax will be on fire AGAIN!
