A HOST OF OUR ACTIVE ANGELS, many of them 3 years old, descended upon St Michael’s yesterday, “for a boy was born” and “the bells of heaven rang for him”. The singing was great. 3 year old Benjamin tolled our single bell and Santa showed up as well.

Tonight it was the turn of one of our local primary schools. They’d opted for an ambitious Christmas musical account and things mustn’t half have have moved on since I was at primary. Younger and older children alike joined in with marvellously remembered words and music. Hat tip to the teaching ‘Active Angels’ who, on both occasions, had gone more than the extra mile. The labours of children and teachers alike were very much appreciated.
