News from Shalstone

Coffee morning in the Reading Room, 2nd December - Thank you everybody who came and supported the coffee morning. A big thank you to everybody who baked cookies and of course many thanks to Amanda for bringing her coffee machine and making the coffee. Thanks to everybody’s generosity we raised an amazing £330.85. As you can see from the history of the Reading Room, that Elspeth has written, we really need this money to pay for the upkeep of the Reading Room.

Concert of Christmas Music, 14th December - I understand from people who went to the concert that this was really lovely and very enjoyable. Jonathan Humbert conducted the choir. Half of the collection taken, £86 was sent to the Red Cross Yemen appeal.

Family Carol Service, 23rd December - This was very well attended. At least sixty people came which was great. Thank you to the people who decorated the church and provided refreshments after the service.

Carol Singing round the Village - Sorry this was very much a last minute decision which night we did it. Pam had a bad cold but still had the singers into her house for mulled wine and mince pies afterwards. We collected £151, which has been sent to Helen and Douglas House Hospices in Oxford.
