Have your say

TWO volunteers have stepped up to cook food for a Christmas Day meal.

An event to feed 90 people who would have otherwise been alone on Christmas Day, in Fareham, will now definitely go ahead after a replacement chef was found.

There were fears it would be cancelled after the head chef fell ill but it will take place as planned.
