BARRATT Homes Bristol has spread the Christmas cheer during its meet the neighbour event at Nailsea's Parish Brook development.

The event saw 70 residents and the wider community join together to celebrate the festive season.

The local choir from the nearby Holy Trinity church performed classic Christmas tunes.

All proceeds raised were donated to the Stroke Association, Barratt Homes Bristol’s charity of the year. 

Andrea Pilgrim, sales director for Barratt Homes Bristol, said: “It was great to warmly welcome so many new families and residents into our thriving new community and come together to celebrate the festivities. 

“For many, this will be their first Christmas at the development and this event provided the perfect backdrop to properly introduce themselves to one another and start new friendships. Community is at the heart of our developments and we are so grateful for the residents who participated in the festive activities.”
