An invitation to get creative this coming Christmas

Not so very far away now - thoughts will be turning to this special time of year.

In recent years there has been a Christmas tree festival in the parish church, but a new challenge is planned for 2019. Groups/organisations/individuals are invited to create a nativity scene which alludes to them or their organisation.

Was Mary a keen knitter? Was Joseph a gardener? Did the shepherds play bowls whilst watching their flocks?

Visitors to the church will be encouraged to vote for their favourite and a small prize will be awarded to the winner.

Please contact Betty on 01237 451132 to advise if you wish to take part, and a place will be marked for you. A sparkling effect would be wonderful so use as much "bling" as you like, and battery lights are welcome too!

The scene must be ready by 14th December.

Good luck to everyone taking part.
