Carol ser­vice boost for the vul­ner­a­ble

Chil­dren help raise £500 with a con­cert at parish church

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

“The cards have proved very pop­u­lar as so many res­i­dents have a deep, per­sonal con­nec­tion with the church.

"I know that one of our first card sales winged its way to New Zealand to the daugh­ter of a vil­lage res­i­dent who was mar­ried in the church many years ago. We were dis­ap­pointed not to have the carol singing out­side in the church­yard this year, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the warm weather we have been hav­ing.

"We have to be ex­tra cau­tious though be­cause of the risk of dam­ag­ing the wind band’s in­stru­ments and the small­est spots of rain force us in­doors. Hope­fully, we will have a drier evening next year and we can slip back out­doors again. There is some­thing mag­i­cal about singing out­doors in a win­tery evening.”

Con­tact parish coun­cil clerk Deb­bie Evans on 01753 891 582 to snap up the last re­main­ing cards.
