Parkgate Carol Singing a Resounding Success

Author: Valerie Johnson Published: 20th December 2012 12:44

On a cool misty night in Parkgate the Christmas festivities commenced with the annual Open Air Carol singing.

Friends and families wandered along The Parade with its new festive Christmas lights or down Brooklands Road and School Lane to St Thomas' Church on Mostyn Square.

At 6.30p.m. Mark Powell and his brass quintet (Blackeys Brass Quintet) came out of St Thomas' and the open air carol singing was underway. Unfortunately after three carols, all sung with great gusto, the cold night air was starting to play havoc with the brass instruments, so everyone retired into the warmth of St Thomas' Church.

Nearly 300 people (and a couple of dogs) crammed into the Church and continued the carol singing. After a dozen or so carols there was a blessing from the Rev'd Judith Calvert and everyone wished each other a happy Christmas.

The majority of people then stayed on and enjoyed the homemade mince pies and biscuits washed down with mulled wine or spiced fruit cordial. There was a very real feeling of a community spirit throughout the evening which after three successful consecutive years really must be an annual event that is not to be missed.
