WISHFORD SCHOOL POSADA SERVICE 2018
On 29 November, pupils, staff and parents welcomed in the season of Advent at Great Wishford Primary school with their annual Posada service. The the first Advent candle was lit and a number of Josephs and Marys were seen off on their journeys.
Each day up until the end of term, two or three pupils from all the classes will take figures of Mary and Joseph home. And another pair started its journey around the village of South Newton, turning up we hope safe and sound on Christmas Eve at St Andrew's church Crib service.
Matilda read from Luke and Charlie read the beautiful prayer written by Osprey class -
A fitting start to a time of reflection and preparation for the birth of Christ.
OAK APPLE CHRISTMAS SUPPER 2018 -
South Newton and Wishford Village hall was bursting at the seams as a record number of over 80 villagers (and ‘foreigners’ from over the river!) came together for the Oak Apple annual Christmas supper.
As friends and families put their heads together over the quiz and fetched their drinks from the bar, a very hard-
The evening ended with enthusiastic and energetic (did they really get up onto their chairs?!) carol-
CAROLS, CAROLS EVERYWHERE!
In the days leading up to Christmas, Great Wishford resounded with the voices of the young and not so young, singing joyfully of hope and the coming of Christ.
St Giles’ church welcomed the school for both its KS2 Christmas performance and end of term service of reflection, and held its annual Service of Seven Lessons and Carols, followed by mulled wine and mince pies.
The Royal Oak hosted carol-
And the Christmas Eve Crib and Christmas Day Eucharist services were still to come…..
Hark, Great Wishford sings!
CHRISTMAS CAFE AT ST GILES’ 2018
Our fifth Christmas Café exceeded all hopes and expectations. It was still in term time so large numbers of parents and children joined our regulars to share the festive fare and mulled wine. We are extremely grateful to our band of gifted bakers who had baked a large selection of wonderfully tasty and creative cakes, enabling us to be generous with portions and seconds, matched by the generosity of the donations given in return.
And speaking of generosity, a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the profusion of raffle prizes -
