Christmas has been a bit different in recent years, but The Pioneer Group’s charitable subsidiary, Compass Support, is putting on a range of activities for local residents to enjoy and safely connect with others during this festive time of year.
The fun-filled activities will help get all residents in the Christmas spirit, from children, to families, to older persons.
Thanks to hardworking volunteers making these events possible, here are just a few of the goings on in the Castle Vale and Falcon Lodge community. Keep an eye out for more events on our social media. We hope to see you there!
