From the Parish Magazine


This Christmas saw a most welcome new feature, a Nativity with real animals held in a barn at the Animal Sanctuary Tina and James have opened at Brook House. The Nativity was acted out by local children to an inventive script written by Tina’s sister. It drew a good audience who stood comfortably on a deep bed of straw and were able to move on to mulled wine and mince pies and to visit the Sanctuary’s animals, with the four red deer proving particularly sociable. Warm thanks to Ruth Gittins who rehearsed the children and most of all to Tina and James for creating such a delightful event in aid of St Mary’s and St John’s.

Warm thanks to everyone who made the Carol Service so memorable, to the Rev Simon for his thoughtful sermon, to Ruth for playing the organ, to Lawrence and the children who read the lessons and to the Bettws Ladies Choir for the beautiful arrangements they sang, and warm thanks once again to Anne Beesley and her family for another convivial evening of Punch and Mince Pies in the Old Vicarage after the Service.

The February Coffee Morning will be hosted in the Parish Hall by Nancy Adams on Saturday 22nd, 10.30 to 12 pm., and we hope everyone will turn out in support.
