Hello and goodbye

 Our Happy House family is used to coming and goings!
With so many visitors, plus volunteers, they like to greet them when they arrive and to wish them well when they leave.
And because the children understand  that before you come back, you have to leave  they happily wave farewell to friends.
After more than three months volunteering with our family , and for the fourth year, Mama and Papa thought Auntie Coral Blackhurst should have a special send-off.
So at Kids Club the children entertained and a handmade card was presented to Auntie Coral, who knew nothing about the party it as it had all been planned in secret!
It was a good opportunity to welcome Scott and Laura Webster from Royal Wootton Bassett, who are great supporters of our family and also volunteer as often as they can.
They made a presentation to Auntie Rose of a gift they had brought for baby Joy.
There was another goodbye too, to Susanna Gregorio from Milan. Susanna and her husband , Livio Leardi, help us so much and brought bikes for the little ones with money raised at GetFit ,the chain of clubs they own in Italy,
The effervescent Susanna, who bought icecream for the party, put her foot forward as the kids sang her the favourite song "Don't forget this home!"
Uncle Billy says: "Everyone had some ice cream and juice while super DJ Evans crooned from behind the behind the wheels of steel."
