Here comes Christmas again and what a great year it’s been!  Masses of hard work by everyone involved, but lots of fun and lots of rewards.  Recognition by the Duke of York’s  Community Initiative Awards was the crowning moment of a year that’s seen a number of tributes to what Orb is achieving in our local community.

So it’s a big thank you to everyone who’s been part of such a successful year – service users, volunteers, partners and friends.  Thanks also for all the Christmas cards and messages of goodwill.  We’re really touched that the work we do obviously does mean so much.

We ended the year with a great little party in the garage – good company and great food and drink as always – and, as you’d expect from Orb, some terrific performances.

Little Miss K and Downright Formidable, back after their success at FEVA, added buzz to the evening.

We had an epic 45 set of original songs and Christmas covers from Sophie and the Triganomics . . .
