If you missed our Carol Service this morning (Tues.10th Dec.) you missed a treat. The Sanctuary was full .and the service included our own members as Readers, our very own Recorder Group played a selection of seasonal tunes and what can be said about the children from St.George’s Primary School? They were wonderful. Full of enthusiasm, they sang their hearts out to very popular modern style Christmas songs. They were a joy to have at this special time of the year. There was coffee, mince pies, stollen and shortbreads to enjoy after. The monies collected were rushed to Woodlands Hospice immediately after the service where it was counted by their fund raising Staff. We raised the sum of £391. 22 so well done everyone – every little helps! A big thank you to the team who made this event possible. Wishing you all a merry and peaceful Christmas and a Happy Healthy 2020
