“These are the highlights of a very enjoyable week celebrating Christmas in the borough, starting with a wonderful Christmas service with carols at the Salvation Army Citadel in Ashford last Sunday. The Mayoress and I are very grateful to them for the cheque that they gave to the Mayor’s Charity Fund for £500.00
Then a lovely Christmas lunch at the Greeno Centre on Wednesday – they do have fun at the Greeno! In the evening we joined hundreds of families to open the Shepperton BigTree night.
Finally, on Thursday night we were at the Staines Branch of the Parkinsons Society for their annual Christmas celebration, which is a ceremony that is both humorous and moving, combining carols, readings and reflections.”
