Building Fund News
Advanced notice of December events.
On Saturday December 1st there will be a flower arranging demonstration ‘Floral Inspirations’ by Mary Western. She is a very well-known demonstrator and even if you are not an arranger yourself, the evening promises to be exciting and full of great ideas.
On Friday December 7th we are very privileged to have Nia who is a highly acclaimed Christian folk singer. She will be singing a wide range of songs including a Christmas selection.
On Friday December 14th there will be a concert by ‘One Accord’. The choir came earlier in the year and we were rather disappointed by audience numbers as they were one of the best mixed – voiced we have had. Please don’t miss out this time.
Book all the dates in your diary and make sure you view the posters for times and prices.
On Friday 30th November the Wellington Town Christmas Lights will be switched on. There will be a procession from here at 5.15 pm (bring along lanterns if you can) with carols accompanied by The Town Band from 5.30 pm. The lights will be switched on at 6.00pm.
