Carol Service 2017

On Sunday 17th December we held our annual Carol Service with Wardle Anderson Brass Band.

We have a fabulous evening of carols, readings, and music.  Wardle Anderson Brass band just get better and better.

Wardle Anderson have played at St James at this event for the past 10 years now and our Carol Service has become established as and annual fixture in their schedule.  So much so they now use this opportunity to present their annual awards to band members which is a honour to be part of. Congratulations to everyone associated with the band, your enthusiasm and dedication knows no bounds.

This years service was kindly sponsored by Shaw Mitchell Accountants of Dale St, Milnrow. We would like to thank Barry and Paula for their support.  As per their wishes we shared our retiring collection with The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and donated £165.

Thank you for everyone’s support and to the small army of volunteers who pulled together the post service refreshments.

Merry Christmas everyone.
