News and Events
Twenty one village organisations joined with St.Mary's church in the St.Nick's Fayre in the Village Hall for another very successful event. Father Christmas was there too, and Jeanette and her team provided very welcome refreshment, mince pies and mulled wine and the world-famous sausage pie. Tombolas, lucky dips, guess the weight/quantity/name competitions and raffles added to the fun of finding those special gifts for Christmas. The School choir entertained us all with their singing, and about £1,767 was raised for the life and work of the church! Thank you to everyone who came, joined in and helped out.
KINGSTON CHAMBER CONCERT
The church was full for this wonderful concert of music by Purcell, Elgar, Finzi, Mozart and Holst, performed by the Kingston Chamber Orchestra conducted by Andy Meyers. Helen Smith added to the delight with her solo performance on Clarinet in the Five Bagatelles by Finzi. Very many thanks to all who made this such a lovely occasion, especially Christine and Graham Smith and the Orchestra - who sent us all home humming to their encore performance of "Shepherd's Hay" by Percy Grainger. £432.42 was donated to the Conservation and Restoration Appeal.
Many thanks to all who organised, performed in and attended this highly enjoyable concert in St.Helen's church, which raised the magnificent sum of £513.26 for the Us work in Tanzania.
SON ET LUMIERE
The church was filled for this special showing of the 1987 Son et Lumiere, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The refreshments beforehand were excellent and the lighting and pictures and the special sound effects made it a night to remember. Who didn't duck when the Spitfire "flew" through the church! Thanks to all who worked so hard to put this on, especially Russell Kilmister, Andrew Davis and Jeanette Barrington.
