Sunday, 7th December


The trees were still in place for the Sunday morning service, but the lights were out and, as soon as worship was over, the clearance began.
Sponsors stripped their trees of lights, baubles and assorted hangings, and quite a few of them took their trees away for use elsewhere.
A squad of home team sweepers did what they do best, or paused in front of the newly-installed and decorated Christmas Tree proper.
As we waved goodbye to de[parting trees, it was almost time to reflect on a marvellous week of community service, charity support, and fellowship.
