The Real Christmas

St Mary's Church
8 December 2007

On Saturday 8th December 2-5pm we celebrated again the ‘Real Christmas’. Our Christmas tree was decorated. The Christingle oranges were assembled and there were some Christmas activities for the younger visitors, seasonal refreshments for everybody, a small number of charity stalls were selling Christmas Goodies, and there was live festive music during the afternoon, including recorders, handbells and carols sung by our Choir. Father Michael sent us all off with some thoughts on the real meaning behind the celebrations. All our village churches were represented once more.
