After the disappointment of having to call off the proposed carol singing in Thornton on Tuesday 10th December because of bad weather, a group of villagers and two guests from Bagworth came together at the Bricklayers Arms last night to set off around the village. Freezing fog did not deter them as they sang their way along Main Street and Hawthorne Drive. But after an hour and a half, with fingers too numb to turn the song sheet pages, and every breath freezing in the air, it was time to decamp back to the pub to count the ‘spoils’. Ben, the landlord, soon thawed everyone out with glasses of mulled wine.
£104.50 was raised towards the Seniors Christmas party 2020.
Thank you Helen for organising, and to all those who turned out on a cold, dark, dank night, and especially to Colin and Lis for leading the vocals.
