Carol Service 07

A capacity group of residents gathered in the village hall on Friday evening, 9th December, to participate in the annual carol service which, on this occasion, was led by Rev. Dr Romilly Micklem from Haddenham Methodist Church.

A range of favourite Carols included O Little Town of Bethlehem, Away in a Manger, See Him Lying on a Bed of Straw and Angels from the Realms of Glory, accompanied by a very capable volunteer orchestra drawn together for the occasion by Alison Green.

Particularly notable this year was the charming singing by the girls and boys of the Haddenham Community Junior School Choir, who delighted the congregation with their vocal pieces — a real highlight of the evening and a tribute to all the hard work they have clearly put in under the guidance of their music teacher, Rachel Adamson.

The Haddenham Handbell Ringers also contributed a finely crafted and sweet-toned musical addition to the proceedings.

Readings where given by representatives of the Haddenham Library, U3A, The Brownies, The Tennis Club and the Parish Council, and John Davis read 'Twas the night before Christmas.

Prayers were offered by Rev Amanda Pink from the Baptist Church.

The evening was rounded off by a "local gaggle of men" ...!
(The Telegraph, 08Dec16).

For the record, the gaggle of thespians on this occasion also included a lady!!
