AN "AFTERNOON TEA"

On Sunday, 17th March 2019, a celebratory "Afternoon Tea" was held in the Church to say A BIG THANK YOU to Friends & members of the 100 Club for their tremendous support over the past 6 years.

Welcome drinks were served as guests arrived and after short presentations from the Chair of the Friends, Colin Burford. and the Secretary of The Tatham History Society, Mike Winstanley, everyone took their seats to enjoy a homemade afternoon tea.

The picture below shows one of the tables set out for the event:



Some of the comments made were:

"All the sandwiches & cakes were absolutely delicious and it was beautifully presented - a proper tea party!"

We met friends, old & new, and made some new ones, as did so many. A great community event."

"It was a lovely gesture."

CHRISTMAS EVE CRIB & CAROL SERVICE 2018

The Church was packed for this service, which was led by Norman & Ann Dawson, with their usual blend of gravitas & humour.

There were the traditional readings given at this time of year, interspersed with Carols, along with seasonal choral pieces, performed by the Wenning Voices to their usual high standard.

After the service, wine & mince pies were enjoyed by a full house at The Old Rectory, which lasted until 10 pm!

Wennington Green   Christmas 2018   December 20th, 6.30pm.

‘The rain showed no sign of stoppin’ , but once again the irrepressible Wenning Voices with their musical director Lucy Leather, gathered to sing carols and songs round the Christmas tree on Wennington Green.

‘The weather outside was frightful’ , nevertheless, they were joined by 60 plus hardy folk, who’d wrapped up and booted up and left the warmth of the fireplace, to join in the merriment of carolling.

Their efforts were rewarded with an endless supply of mulled wine and mince pies throughout the evening. The repertoire, which included many of the traditional carols as well as a few lesser known ones, appeared to please all tastes and voices: “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”, “Good King Wenceslas”, "Ding Dong Merrily on High”, “It was on a Starry Night”, “Children of Christmas”, and “Swingle Bells”.

The evening came to a close with “Happy Birthday” for Jake’s 6th? birthday, followed by an enthusiastic finale of “Oh Come All Ye Faithful”. Following the long held tradition of carol singing, many of the revellers repaired to “The Bridge Inn” Tatham afterwards.

What a glorious start to Christmas…..

………“just singing, singing in the rain”

A BIG THANK YOU to all who joined us in spite of the weather and to all those who helped in the organisation of the evening.
