There were over 250 in the church. Our singalong was supported musically by
Robert Woods, St Faith’s musical director,
who accompanied the story telling of
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, some traditional
Christmas songs a
nd some not so traditional action songs,
including a very noisy scout version of the twelve
days of Christmas.
Afterwards we enjoyed some refreshments thanks to
the support of the catering team. Good fun and Christmas cheer was shared by
The editor adds:
24 hours after this riotous occasion
w welcomed two very different musical groups to
entertain us at an evening fund-raising concert.
First to take to the stage were the St Nicholas
Singers, the talented and always entertaining
community choir founded and conducted by our
one-time organist, Mike Foy.
His wife, daughter and two sisters made up most of
the front row
- definitely a case of keeping it in the family.
They offered us some lovely carols
After the interval, when wine and mince pies were
provided, the evening was rounded off by the
sounds of skiffle.
