CHRIST CHURCH: The church held a successful “Carols on the Green “ service at Nevill Green last Sunday. The sunny weather brought out a good crowd to sing favourite Christmas Carols and enjoy mince pies and spicy hot drinks . Back indoors, we had our annual carol service in the church on December 18th. There will be no Friday Tots today.

A Happier New Year: Yes this country is in a mess at the moment with all the uncertainty and transport strikes but I can’t be the only one to be thoroughly fed up with reading the all the sniping letters about Brexit in the paper. If you can do something positive about it, do it. If not, try expending all that energy on something that could make a difference to someone, like voluntary work. I am thankful we are not a country at war. Only verbally apparently. Agree to disagree, quietly, and get on with your lives. I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
