Christmas Festivities 2015

After an exhausting, but very successful, Festival of Christmas Trees, in which the Friends were heavily involved, it was pleasant to end the year with the Friends Christmas event, a festive afternoon tea in the Saints on Saturday 6 December.

Tea and cakes were served by Committee members (all those hours working in the Coffee shop proving an invaluable experience!). Music was provided by the Director of Music himself, Ian Brackenbury, performing some well known carols on a rather ancient electronic keyboard. As well as the whole room joining in on most of the carols, there was also an impromptu rendering of “We Three Kings” by soloists Joyce Platts, Jean Peppitt and Janet Hanwell (duet), and Anne Duncan as the three kings.

The raffle saw a plethora of prizes distributed around the room, and it all added up to a convivial end to the Friends year.

Thank you all for your support this year. We wish you a Happy Christmas, and look forward to another successful year in 2016.
