Can you hear that? The sounds of the festive season are ringing out across your community. From choirs raising their voices to a timeless melody, to car radios playing the songs we always hear in December – there is a reason why people enjoy and actively look forward to this time of year.
Community spirit is also at its strongest, so are you prepared to help your local area celebrate?
Take a look at our list to ensure you have the best festive season – you can even check it twice.
Food and drink
The staple of any festive season is the food – and lots of it. After a long year, this is the time to treat yourself, and you can extend this to your community venue.
Having a constant supply of hot chocolates and mince pies can get anyone in the festive mood. A semi-commercial kitchen can store and warm them up as a treat to have during meetings or an alternative at coffee mornings. It will also be able to withstand all levels of usage without breaking or causing a hygiene issue.
Love baking? Your semi-commercial kitchen can be home to a seasonal cook-off. Freshly made treats will give the occasion an added lift.
Another thing to consider is that across the festive season, you will see more people wish to use your community venue to host events. Whether for the 20 or 200 heads, the ideal kitchen can help you ensure they are able to pull off their event seamlessly.
For many, the festive season is not complete without seeing a local pantomime. The laughter and joy that comes from a performance is what has seen them endure down the years. Your community venue could host such a performance. Some older community or church halls come with a stage, one that could be hired out for the event.
All performers and attendants will need refreshments. A semi commercial kitchen will be able to withstand the heavy usage, and can be easily cleaned of any spillages and makeup that could smear onto surfaces.
It’s time to dust off the decorations for another year. With many choosing between decorations and other purchases, the seasonal cheer you’ll bring will be worth more than the trouble. Why not turn this into a community event, with paper garland making? The opportunities to create something your community can take away will also generate happiness.
A kitchen is the heart of the home, and your community venue is the heart of your community. This time of year, a semi-commercial kitchen can help you make your venue feel like a second home, and a place of refuge and joy for all.
