WMC: January 2017
Christmas Tree Festival
During the weekend of 2 — 4 December, beginning with the town's Dickensian Evening as usual, our Chapel had a display of decorated Christmas trees. This year our fund-raising proceeds went to a project in which two of our own young people are involved.
Zack and Jordan Smith are preparing to take part in the Latin Link Spring Step project in Ecuador later this year.
This Christian charity works with young people in Latin American countries, helping to improve their quality of life and offering them opportunities to develop their own skills, as well as providing practical help and support educationally, physically and spiritually.
Thank you to all those who came to show their support for Zack and Jordan, who themselves are working extremely hard to raise money for this project.
During the Dickensian Evening on Friday 2nd December we served freshly baked mince-pies and warm drinks from 6 pm until 9 pm. On the Saturday there was a Coffee Morning from 10 am followed by lunches at 12:15.
