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

Croston Capers

Monday’s Day Riders met at Ormskirk Station and 9 of us set off for Croston via Eccleston and Mawdesley. The weather was sunny and perfect for cycling although the temperature never rose much during the morning and we looked forward to reaching Croston’s Velo Cafe where we found a sheltered spot and sat outside enjoying the sunshine and lake view.

After our respective hot drinks it was time for the return journey towards Tarleton and on to Burscough.

For the next 6 weeks Mike Miller has kindly offered to coordinate the rides in my absence. Very Best Wishes to all.
