PEOPLE who might otherwise spend the day alone will enjoy a free festive meal and an afternoon of fun at the Pill Social Centre, Milford Haven, today (Monday).

Organised by mayor Cllr Colin Sharp and his husband Cllr Guy Woodham, the annual event sees around 100 guests and volunteers come together to celebrate and socialise.

Designed to combat loneliness over the Christmas period, the event has now become a regular feature in the community calendar.

And thanks to Big Lottery Funding of £8,500, this year will be bigger and better than ever.
