Santa’s Elves working late at the Pop In Place…

December 24th It’s   a   little   known   fact   that   as   well   as   being   the   home   for   Performers,   Poppets   and   many   other   great   things, the Pop In Place is also one of Santa’s many wrapping stations across the land. At   this   time   of   year   the   Elves   are   extremely   busy   wrapping   presents   for   the   children   of   Bere   Regis   and surrounding areas. Once in a while the Elves need to take a break from their important work. In   the   early   hours   of   Friday   23rd   December   the   night   shift   was   in   full   swing,   when   a   bit   of   a   commotion   began. Curiosity got the better of me and I had to take a look. This is what I found… December 23rd The   Pop   In   Place   is   run   solely   by   volunteers,   all   of   the   various   groups   flourish   due   to   the   dedication   of   the teams of volunteers that help. When   you   click   on   News   and   scroll   down   month   on   month   on   this   website   you   can   see   all   the   various   events that have taken place this year. They   are   a   wonderful   reflection   of   a   community   that   is   vibrant   and   pro   active   in   enhancing   the   quality   of   life for all. It is only possible with the help of reliable, enthusiastic and committed volunteers. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, Happy Christmas. Alison Bennett Team Leader December 23rd During   the   evening   of   the   Staff   Christmas   Party   amongst   many   other   party   games   and   the   like.   We   also   held two   very   prestigious   competitions   one   was   “Knobbiest   Knees”   that   was   won   by   Colin   Vowles   and   the   other “Most Slender Ankles” the worthy winner was Karen Boreham.

Christmas Party 19th December…

The   Christmas   Spirit   was   alive   and   well   at   the   Pop   in   Place   on   Monday   morning   for   our   last   session   of   this year. We played pass the parcel, won by Colin Vowles, and had a festive Quiz won by Gill Hart ‘Mrs Christmas’. As   you   can   see   from   the   photos   that   we   even   ended   up   doing   a   conga   and   some   smooth   manoeuvres   to   all the old favourites, a great time was had by all, special thanks to Denise for arranging the morning. Thanks   to   the   Parish   Council   for   the   wonderful   Christmas   tree   and   to   Gill   Hart   and   Karen   Boreham   for decorating it so beautifully.
