Christmas Carols 2017 Report

Festive Success

We had a fantastic turnout from the local community for our Christmas Carols in the Park afternoon with Milnrow Band on Saturday 23rd December 2017.  Everyone brought their festive spirit and made much effort, even the doggies donned their Christmas best for the occasion.   A festively-dressed team of horses & riders trotted down from Edge Gate Farm in Denshaw and really set the scene for a truly lovely afternoon.  Hot drinks wet the whistles of the singing crowd, mince pies were scoffed and people enjoyed a tipple of mulled wine from the neighbouring Free Trade pub.


We are very grateful to Milnrow Band for volunteering their time and skills to play at this event and we were overwhelmed with the support and donations from our members which allowed us to provide refreshments. 


There are already plans in place to make this a regular event as it would seem a welcome addition to the calendar on the run up to Christmas.  So if you missed it in 2017, don’t worry you can join us in December 2018 and help us make it an even bigger and better.
