BEREA Gardens retirement village and the Berea Baptist Church have close ties, with many residents members or adherents of the church.
For the third year in succession, Berea Baptist Church provided the grateful residents with a pre-Christmas tea and entertainment.
On December 22, about 100 residents enjoyed a morning of quizzes and a tea in the company of pastoral couple, Andrew and Hazel Everitt and their helpers.
Each resident also received a small gift to mark the occasion.
“The event grows bigger every year,” organiser Harry van Gerven said. “Berea Baptist Church would like to thank the sponsors, Johnson & Johnson, Jevon Tyres, Berea SPAR [Ashmel SPAR], Abbotsford SPAR and Pierre and Sharon from Headz Hair.”
Anyone interested in getting involved next year can contact Van Gerven on 083-785-0330.
