A big thank you to all who helped make yesterday's grand Village Christmas event so successful (including the PCSO Sue Harwood, and a couple of our local firefighters who helped marshall the procession of children in costume and the donkey from the school up the dark and icy road to the Five Bells Pub !There should be pictures of the nativity scene in the Sevenoaks Chronicle soon , with Landlord John entering into the spirit of things with his Innkeeper's costume, and a wonderful "stable" complete with hay and assorted animals.
In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures from inside the church. As well as the stalls there was also some activity on offer for the children, and a well used Quiet Area in the candlelit Lady Chapel for prayer.
A great number of people, coordinated by the Know Your Neighbours group, were involved in organising this event - from the school, the pub, the church and other groups, with Marion Gilchrist holding it all together somehow. Thanks to Dan Clews, also, for providing entertainment in the church hall, and John Miah for his wonderful Tandoori Nights cooking - delicious as ever. Thank you to everyone for a night to remember, and I hope you have a quiet day today to recover!
