St Swithun's Church - Great Dalby
"If it rains on St. Swithun's Day, it will rain for 40 days"
Christmas services had their challenges............. all because of a light fusing, but thanks to Chris Garley, we were able to continue with one light less, but more candles. Firstly we had our Carol Service, taken by the Methodist Minister and readings by both Methodists and Church members.
Great Dalby School followed with 2 magnificent performances of their Christmas music and entertainment. Judging by the number of brass instruments on seats, ready to be played, there must have been a great sound produced under the old oak beams. The annual Crib Service followed on Christmas Eve, to a full church and presented by Kathy Dickinson and helpers.
It is so good to see the old Medieval buidling being used. Long may it continue.
