Carol singing around the village

During the evening of December 16th, about twenty of us spent a couple of hours carol-singing around Llanrhaeadr. This was an idea from Pam Evans - it wasn’t to raise money for anything, and we didn’t make a collection, it was just to spread a little seasonal cheer in the run up to Christmas. Choirmaster John Roberts organised our singing, and we made about a dozen stops at different points around the village, singing two or three carols each time. We’d checked out the route beforehand, so we knew where we could stop under street lights, in order to be able to see our carol sheets! Predictably enough, we ended up at the King’s Head …

After we’d sung ourselves hoarse, we returned to Church Walk, and a splendid supper at Pam and Adrian’s, provided by some of the singers who’d produced a number of variations on shepherd’s pie. Must have been good, ‘cos Alan had four helpings (no doubt to fortify himself for his role as Santa’s Little Helper - see pic!) Pam had also organised entertainment of various sorts, and a visit from Santa himself!

Very many thanks to Pam and Adrian for their hospitality, and for having had the idea in the first place. A good time was had by all. Repeat next year, please!
