AN IMPORTANT INVITATION FROM CAFE LINGO :

 

Cafe Lingo  will be celebrating Christmas with an informal, friendly meal on Christmas Eve.

 

 We understand that there are some foreign people on the Island who feel very isolated at Christmas, living so far away from their extended families, so this year we decided to host an informal, friendly 'Meet and Eat' celebration on Christmas Eve. It will be open to Cafe Lingo students, volunteers, supporters and other foreign people within the Manx Community. Each person will pay for their own food and drink.

 

It will be held at PAPARAZZI next door to THE PROM CHURCH  starting at 5.30 p.m.. The restaurant will be closing at 8.00 p.m.

 

THE PROM CHURCH has a Christmas Eve Communion Service at 8pm and anyone who has been at the Paparazzi meal will be most welcome to come next door and share in the service, if they wish.
