Girls' Brigade News
We finished last term with a well-attended evening of carols in the Church Hall.
Amy led everyone in a retelling of the nativity which compelled the girls' full attention. They had to listen carefully for all mentions of 'left' and 'right' at which sweets and baubles had to be passed in the appropriate direction round the circle. There were very welcome breaks in the story to sing a carol and recover one's wits! The evening finished with refreshments for girls, family & friends. With generous contributions from those attending, the collection for Action for Children raised about £70.
We start again on Monday 11th January 2016. Explorers (4½ — 8) meet at 6pm and Juniors and Seniors meet at 6.30pm. New members are always welcome. Please contact the Captain, Kym Burgess for further details (Email: Kym@sidius.free-online.co.uk, Tel: 01252 334814) or see our page on the Church Website.
