♫ ♫ Our First Community Carol Singing ♪♫ ♫

Our village carol singing event on Sunday 14th December was a great success – we certainly didn’t let the wet weather dampen our spirits.

The aim was to get villagers together and to have a good seasonal time and judging by the turnout and all the rosy cheeks and sparking eyes, we can safely say that this mission was accomplished! Our rich community spirit could certainly be felt…!! The singing was magical and Hugh Davies’s rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas was a real treat.

Thank you to all of the members of the choir for your wonderful singing and for giving it your all, a very special thanks to Jack, our Choirmaster and Claire on percussion who has  kept us all on the straight and narrow- it’s certainly been a giggle.

The choir and the community would also like to thank the Parish Council for funding the mulled wine, lights and signs, thanks also to Paul and Nicola for allowing us to take over the pub, and of course a huge thank you for all those wonderful mince pies donated from various residents… Mmmmm

May this be the first of many Christmas choir events to come, if you have an idea or desire for an event please share it, we have a very willing community as demonstrated on Sunday. Do keep an eye out for further vocal treats, and remember this is a community choir, no experience or auditions just a desire to sing, have company and fun. (I have in mind an event in commemoration of the Great War –  ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’ medley, we will require some solos, tenors and suggestions for war time songs- please see resident’s blog for further details)

Once again thank you.!!

 Wishing you and your families a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
