Holiday at Home in Barnes, Mortlake and East Sheen

Each summer the Parish of Mortlake with East Sheen team ministry hold a Holiday at Home week. Local residents of Barnes, Mortlake and East Sheen who are unable to get away for a holiday or would like more company during the summer are invited to join in either for a day or two or for the whole week.

Last year’s Holiday at Home was a little different due to the pandemic but this year it was back to normal with a cruise ship theme. On Monday the ship docked in Venice and there was Italian food and music. On Tuesday it was France and Greece on Wednesday. Dry land on Thursday with a trip to Richmond Park before finishing on a Desert Island on Friday. With quizzes, singalongs, exercises, marvellous food a tough jigsaw and a reading of James and the Giant Peach, there was plenty to keep everyone busy and in need of a rest at the end of the week!
