A Churchfield Christmas

It has been a very active few days in Churchfield culminating in our “Carols and Brass” event on Sunday 8th January.

It was a pretty chilly Sunday morning, with some cold winds blowing across Churchfield and a few showers threatening to send us dashing for the shelter of Holy Trinity Church, but the Skelmanthorpe Training Band, and the audience, were resilient to the end. Despite the cold, it was a very enjoyable and successful morning so a huge thank you must go out to the band for their tremendous efforts and dedication.

The Friends of Churchfield would also like to thank everyone that helped to make and fit the tree decorations, as well as all those who baked cakes for the day, the Holy Trinity Church for providing toilet facilities (and some welcome hot drinks), and last but not least, all those who turned up to sing along, and buy cake and raffle tickets on the day. Thank you all.

The week had started of on Monday with our tree dressing morning. Thankfully the weather was kind to us that day and the trees were decked with all kinds of homemade decorations, from painted conkers to woollen garlands. It would be impossible to describe the scene, so here are a few pictures instead:
