Kilmelford Church Carol Service, 19th December 2021

It was lovely to see so many people, young and not quite so young, at the Carol singing, lessons and gift service.

The number of bags of gifts highlighted the generosity of village and local friends.

I had been told by the Social Work department back in November that they could receive unwrapped gifts but when I took them in on the Monday morning I was informed, sadly due to new Covid regulations, that they were no longer allowed to access family homes and couldn’t take the gifts.

It was suggested that Hope Kitchen could, so I took the bags there where they were gratefully received and they much appreciated the wide variety of presents and ages they could give them to.

Warmest thanks to all who gave gifts and to those who took part in reading the lessons.

Won’t it be great when we can sing without masks again.

Happy Christmas!
