EASTWOOD’S New Horizon Church hosted a nativity play at a weekly lunch club last week.

Volunteers at the lunch club performed the traditional festive play, with ex-pastor Ray Graham playing Joseph.

Organiser Dorothy Smith said: “It was lovely to see them all acting and singing together.

“We had a good laugh – particularly with Doreen who played Mary and had a blanket stuffed up her jumper.”

The New Horizon Church in Nottingham Road is closing down and local clubs and groups are having to find alternative accommodation.

The very last lunch club was held this week, where there was carol singing.

The club had been going for 28 years and volunteers are currently looking for an alternative base.

Church services moved to Eastwood Comprehensive School earlier this year.
