Don’t cook a turkey for one, spend the day in company.

Many of the places you would normally go to see a friendly face will be closed on Christmas Day and the buses may not be running to help you get there anyway. We also know that cooking a turkey for one is impractical, booking a table for one is unappealing and if your local family or neighbours are away then it can be hard to know where you will be welcome to share a meal or company on Christmas Day.

All around the country there are people of all ages looking forward to Christmas Day because it gives them a chance to mix with their local community and make contact with their neighbours. Our website is there to put everyone in touch with each other.
