Newbold Women’s Group Carol service and Christmas party
Around thirty members attended our annual Carol service on Wednesday 7th December at 7pm followed by our Christmas party in the Parish Room. This was an opportunity for the Rector to meet some members for the first time and we were pleased that Ben was able to open the service with bidding prayers and to close it with a blessing. As usual Stuart Watkinson played the organ for the carols and we lost count of how many extracts from different carols he played in his musical interlude! We were pleased that Stuart and Elizabeth as well as Stephen and Julie Franks were able to join us for the evening. The buffet spread was absolutely delicious and was a credit to our members who had all brought contributions. Out next meeting is on Wednesday 4th January at 7pm in the Parish Room when Stuart Watkinson is doing a surprise presentation. If anyone would like to join our group they will be made most welcome and my contact details are on the back cover of The Evangelist if anyone would like further information.
