(Back to Archive 2008 or Picture Gallery Index)
Singers gathering at the community shop found late night volunteers in residence

to see who went carol singing
The band prepares
Look, one hand....
Moving to the next singing station....
...whilst the walking fiddler plays a jig or two
The girls perform with due decorum....
....whilst the boys leap on walls, as usual!
Collections for the Local Air Ambulance
Christmas greetings exchanged
Pause at Wysteria and Southland Cottages
for mulled wine and mince pies
In Little Street
The usual warm welcome at The Thatched House
A very willing young volunteer is sent into the Star Inn
to "warn" the customers.....
.....of approaching singers and collectors
Outside the Old Bakehouse - half the choir seems
to have defected to the Star Inn
The final carol outside Northston
The boys dispense mulled wine at the Church Hall....
....with home made bread, soup and mince pies.
A tale of Christmases past?
The last of the soup
Father Christmas is unmasked
The boys are tired at last....
...and are summoned to go home.
