MORE details have been revealed of a group’s packed Christmas agenda.

And the schedule for the Hartlepool Special Needs Support Group includes a change of venue for its Christmas presentation show.

The group has a drama arm called Constellation which will now be holding its Christmas show on Sunday this week, in St Teresa’s Church, in Braemar Road.

It will run from 4pm to 6pm and group spokesman Pat Allison said: “All are welcome and after the performance, refreshments will be served in the church hall.”

On the same day, the Friends of the group will be giving a performance on the morning, in the Special Needs Group base in its resource centre at 109 Park Road.

Before then, the group’s Christmas fair will be held this Thursday at the resource centre from 10am to noon with a 50 pence admission fee which includes refreshments, and all are welcome.

Pat said: “There will be a raffle, Christmas cake, hamper and plenty more besides.”

There will also be a special “snow soup” which has been made by students of the Catcote Academy in Hartlepool, Pat added.

There will be more fun at the resource centre on Wednesday, December 11, when a Christmas mince pie afternoon is held from 1pm to 3pm.

Admission is £1 with coffee and tea included.
