THE Isle of Wight Salvation Army will be offering free Christmas dinners to lonely people or to those who are not having a festive meal.

The meal will be served from 1pm on Christmas Day at the centre, in Pyle Street, Newport, followed by fun and festivities, until 4pm.

There will also be a service at 10.30am everyone is welcome.

Corps Sgt Maj Roy Williams, said: "The economic climate is not good at the moment so if we can do anything to make Christmas the happy and joyful time it should be by offering a place of warmth, love and fellowship, then we are happy to do it."

Anyone wishing to attend the dinner should leave their name, address and contact details with the Salvation Army at the centre.
