Our carol singalong on the evening of December 19th turned out to be a lovely event, complete with the ‘star of Bethlehem’ visible just above the horizon! The star is actually the great conjunction of the planets Jupiter and Saturn, which currently appear almost as one, all very exciting.
The music to accompany this spectacle of the night sky was provided by an excellent group of singers with keyboard accompaniment, organised by Village Centre Trustee David Collingham. Naturally those assembled in the Centre car park were eager to add their own voices, so there were enthusiastic versions of many popular carols and Christmas songs. To fuel the singers there was mulled wine, mince pies and sausage rolls, provided by Centre volunteers.
All in all a great evening and we hope to repeat the event in a year’s time, when hopefully there will not have to be so much emphasis on social distancing.
Stay safe and well everybody. You can see some photos of the event below. Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year!
