December 2017

Christmas is coming.  The Goose is Getting Fat!

That’s the first line of an old English Christmas song.  I guess it reminds us that Christmas takes preparation, and I’m sure many of us have made our plans already as to what we’re doing this festive season. It’s a special and wonderful time for many people, but can also be a difficult time for others.  In the song I’ve quoted, I’m not sure whether the goose will have a happy time!!!

There are changes happening at EU Welcome. We’ll tell you more about them next month.  Through a contract with Southampton City Council our sevices should be able to continue well past Brexit, but we’ll need to work in a different way. We’ll give you more news on that next month when we will make things CLEAR! 

In the meantime most of our normal services and drop ins will continue throughout December (see below) and on the website CONTACT US page for details, BUT NOTE WE WILL NOT BE WORKING ON 25, 26 AND 27 DECEMBER.

On Saturday 2 December and every first Saturday of the month our Bulgarian volunteer Dessy will be offering support to people wanting to develop their career prospects. You can meet with her and Dave Adcock at Costa Coffee upstairs in the Marlands Mall.   She can help in English and Bulgarian.  Here are full details in Bulgarian http://www.euwelcome.org.uk/languages/bulgarian/

Happy Christmas!
