Mission Valentine competition

THERE was a packed dining room at Arbroath Town Mission on Friday for a special meal prepared to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

The company was made up of service users from day care, the lunch club, keep fit, the craft club and bowling who spent a happy time together.

The tables were set with a lovely Valentine card made by the Junior Section of the Girls’ Brigade Company at each place, and sweets and biscuits followed the meal.

Prizes of boxes of chocolates were presented to the winners of the Valentine competition which had taken the form of a word search heart and the compiling of a poem.

Some of the entries were read out during lunch and all were posted on the noticeboard.

A car and a gift of sweets were also delivered on Monday to all those seniors who receive the Mission’s meals on wheels.
