4. Attend The Secret Garden’s Weekly Ronda De Mate

A group get together every Saturday at The Secret Garden as a way for people to socialise in a safe environment, and new faces are always welcome. The café opens at 11 am and the meet-up lasts just over an hour, but can take longer, as the good supply of tasty cakes and beverages might tempt you to stay.



5. Wrap Your Presents

With most Christmas trees up and decorated, the next step is to get wrapping those presents. Could there be a merrier sight?
