ST NICK'S FAYRE
Some clever re-arrangement of the tables meant that this year's Fayre seemed less hectic and more enjoyable. Father Christmas was able to see as many young people as came to his grotto, the School choir sang a wonderful selection of Christmas songs, Jeanette's sausage pie was as wonderful as ever - and everyone, whether looking after a stall or visiting, had a thoroughly good time.
Thank you to all who organised and ran it and helped us to raise a magnificent £1,720 for the life and work of the church.
KINGSTON CHAMBER ORCHESTRA CONCERT
The second concert given by the Kingston Chamber Orchestra was even better than the first one! Over 90 people filled the church on Advent Sunday afternoon to hear the orchestra and the young highly accomplished cellist, Jamal Aliyev, perform a varied programme of excellent music.
Our thanks to Christine and Graham Smith, to musical director Andy Myers, to the players of the orchestra and especially Jamal Aliyev for a wonderful concert. Thanks too to Jeanette and her team for the afternoon teas and refreshments, and to all who donated a total of £553 to the Conservation and Refurbishment Project.
CHALGROVE ARTISTS EXHIBITION
Our second art exhibition this year again demonstrated what a talented group of artists we have in Chalgrove, with work by Jeanette Barrington (quilting), Janet Dunkley (watercolour), Christine Pulker (embroidery), Sally Redding (mixed media), Jim Robinson (mixed media) and Gordon Smith (mixed media).
Thanks to all our artists and to Andrew and Barry for preparing the display areas.
SON ET LUMIERE
This time we had two screens for the show, as originally shown in 1987. There was a special matinee performance for children and parents from the Primary school on the Friday afternoon, and then the main performance on Saturday evening and a good number of people came to see both.
We now plan to update the show to bring it up to the present time and to add the results of more recent historical research about Chalgrove. It is hoped to show this "much improved" version in 2016 after the completion of the Conservation and Refurbishment Project.
