Churchwarden Brenda’s December Notes


The clocks have been turned back, the leaves are falling off the trees, the temperature has dropped and Christmas preparations are well advanced.

Our Remembrance Day service took place on 12 November in the evening and was well attended with dignitaries from the parish council, borough council and  county council, with special reference to those who lived in the parish and paid the ultimate price in WWI.

So now we look forward to the coming season.   The church will have been decorated in time for our Christingle service, where once again the choir and the families from Pierrepont Gamston school will be joining us – again we look forward to seeing Mark as the Christingle!   Please see details of all our services over the Christmas period below and the change of times for some of them.

Is with sadness that I have to tell you that Richard Cumberland died on 30 October after a long battle with cancer.   There was a private ceremony before a memorial service on 15th November at St. Mary’s Church, Nottingham.   Our thoughts and prayers are with him but especially for Rae and all the family.

I also ask you to remember in your thoughts and prayers Robin and Elizabeth Brackenbury and Colin and Jean Wightman.

There will be no magazine next month so I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.
