Carols near The Christmas Tree

The Preston Trust committee invite you all to come along to this village event. You may have noticed that a decorated Christmas tree is already in position, outside The Red Lion.

Ray and Jo have once again kindly agreed to prepare the mulled wine and mince pies, the juice and nibbles.(Including some “free from” alternatives for those with allergies) The winners from the JMI School’s Christmas Competition will switch on the tree lights at c. 6.10pm. A group of five outstanding instrumentalists, led by Richard Cole, will then accompany us all to sing five lovely familiar carols. Carol sheets will be available to help us remember the words! For those of you who prefer technology the carols will be available to download onto your phones or to access from the Village website

Those of you who would like to will also have the opportunity to buy tickets for the raffle to be drawn at the Film Show on the 8th of January.

Rather than crowding too many people into The Red Lion, the Preston Trust will provide several gazebos on the pub side of The Green, if the weather looks to be wet and chilly.

Thus, wrap up warm, bring your torches and phones, and come along to join in, please. This is always a simple enjoyable way to start the Christmas season. We look forward to seeing you there!
