This month is a tale of two halves.

The first half of the month includes Remembrance and the band leading the parade through the town, a very special event and a great advert for our young people. It was, as always, a very well supported and poignant event.

The second half of the month see's us entering our next battalion competition, the 5 a side football. Historically we have not been especially successful in this but, who knows, perhaps this is our year!

I'm sure that every other article is telling you about the Christmas fayre on the 26th. We will be in the hall at the back of the church with some games to entertain your youngsters while you look around the stalls.

After all that brain activity they were able to relax and enjoy some musical entertainment. Terri White very kindly brought along three of her pupils who played for us — the first public performance for all three of them! We sang along to some familiar carols...
