CHURCH FLOODLIGHTS – The floodlights at Holy Trinity Church were sponsored on November 28 by Liz Kirkman, on December 11 in memory of Eric Cook and on December 22 by Sue Nottingham.  Further sponsorship over the Christmas period would be welcomed - contact Donald Hawtin (phone 670593)

WHIST DRIVES – The whist drive held on November 26 raised £18 for church funds. The next will be on Tuesday, December 10 at 7.30pm in the village hall.

CAROL SERVICE – CALLING ALL SINGERS - Every year we have a service of carols and readings for which we form a village choir. This year, our Carol Service is on Friday, December 13 at 6.30pm.  It is a lovely event, with a traditional service involving a huge range of people from both villages and is appropriate for all, young and old and everything between.

In November and December we form a choir to rehearse three or four carols for the service. This is open to all and all are welcome. Some choir members sing a lot and are members of other, slightly more professional choirs, some can't read music. It really doesn't matter. All that does matter is that you enjoy singing and are available to sing on the 13th and for most of the rehearsals in the run up.

The final two dates of the rehearsal schedule are Monday, December 9 at 8pm; and Thursday, December 12 at 8pm – both in Shenington Church.

We would love to welcome new members into the choir, new residents of our villages, or people who simply haven't got around to singing with us yet.

If you're interested please email or call her on 670201.
