Don’t miss! Carol Service in the Church at 3.00 pm on Sunday 23rd December, with a special guest.

December 19th, 2018

Don’t miss this year’s Carol Service to be held in the Church at 3pm on Sunday 23rd December.

We are very lucky to have living in our midst a professional soprano – director of the international vocal group Synergy Vocals, and a former member of the BBC Singers and The Swingle Singers – Micaela Haslam.

She will be singing The Virgin’s Cradle-Hymn by Herbert Fryer (early 20th century – in Latin) and an aria from Handel’s Messiah. Most importantly, she’d love you all to know that her name rhymes with “Delilah” – not “inhaler”

Village Advent Celebrations 2018. December 16th. The Old Farmhouse, Manor Road.

December 16th, 2018

Yesterday was a mere shower compared with today’s “monsoon”! Undeterred by the apparent start of the rainy season, over thirty people turned out, complete with an array of colourful umbrellas. To the revellers’ great joy, a large outbuilding offered a refuge for the nightly drinks and refreshments.

Village Advent Celebrations 2018. December 15th. The Old Vicarage, Magpie Road.

December 16th, 2018

After two whole weeks of fine evenings the inevitable rain finally arrived. Hardy villagers splashed their way through puddles to be at the Old Vicarage by 6.30 when, astonishingly, the rain relented just long enough for refreshments to be taken and the decorated window to be admired! It was raining heavily once more when everyone departed for their firesides….
