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
Brenda McKenzie very kindly hosted a Christmas get together for the Nordic walking groups last evening. As you can see some of the walkers were very under dressed! Morning walks resume on 6th January at 10:15; evening walks 13th January at 6:30.
Sadly, all the Ukulele groups are suspended with immediate effect.
No further sessions will take place for the moment.
15 Ramblers and 5 Easy walkers joined together today for a roam around 2 of the parks in the south of the city. Alighting at St Michaels station we walked to the perimeter of Sefton Park and meandered along its wide pathways. Passing by the fountains, band stand and fairy glen we took a detour into the Palm House. This was set up for Christmas celebrations and looked splendid. The guide showed several of the group the donation book which included the donation made by the late George Harrison to help return the building back to its former glory in 2002. Continue reading
