To celebrate the festive season St. Andrew's Church organised yet again a successful Carols, Bangers & Mash evening on Friday 1 December. Some 90 people took part in the festivities and were treated to a glass of mulled cider on arrival followed by a fabulous meal of locally produced sausages, mashed potato and peas. A tempting array of delicious hot and cold desserts, both novel and traditional, put paid to any pre-Christmas good intentions. Part way through the evening the St. Andrew's choir sang Christmas songs and carols and, with the song sheets provided, everyone could join in creating some great community spirit.
The Rev. Scott Patterson did an admirable job as "Master of Ceremonies" and also presided over the evening's raffle.
This was very much a team effort with a great many people contributing including Nicky Barker coordinating the kitchen team, Patrick Rendell the music and choir, Henry Lang and Robert Clark the bar and many others making the puddings. The Curry Rivel & Drayton Girl Guides also deserve a big mention — they and their group leaders worked hard as the evening's waitresses, table clearers and kitchen staff.
The evening raised around £1,100 for St. Andrew's. Roll on the next event!
