On a very windy but fortunately dry night, carol singers toured the village, singing in a number of strategic places whilst the children collected money for charity. A few days previously, volunteers met to collect the traditional holly and ivy from the churchyard, to make Christmas garlands with which to decorate many telephone poles around the village. More pictures of these activities can be seen on the following pages, and excerpts from several of the carols can be heard.
As is the custom, the churchyard provided the materials for the holly and ivy decorations around the village. It was generally agreed that this year’s crop of holly berries is the best ever!
The greenery is then taken to the Church Hall for assembly into garlands.
The “outside workers” then take over:
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
