With just a handful more sleeps to go before Christmas here’s a few highlights of what’s going on in our town over the coming days:
We have Carols galore, starting this evening at Revive Church on High St where the Revive worship band holds their traditional Carol Service at 6pm, followed by festive refreshments. This is a free event and will be a great evening of celebration this Christmas.
Get to St George’s Church tonight for their popular Carols by Candlelight, starting at 6.30pm – A traditional service of Nine Lessons & Carols followed by Mulled Wine and Mince Pies in the beautiful surroundings of the candlelit church.
On Thursday 21 December at High St Books, there’ll be 2 hours of live colundi music and other sonic enchantments!
Then on Friday you can take the children to a cool cookie workshop up at New Mills Youth & Community Centre on Longlands Rd.
