In the heart of the Aughton community, Windy Ridge group recently decorated up their centre ready to host to their second annual Christmas Carol Service working with Rotherham Council Neighbourhoods staff, RotherFed and the local infant school. The service was held on the 11th of December at the Windy Ridge Neighbourhood Centre Aughton, the event successfully brought together residents both young and old for a day of festive merriment in the run up to Christmas.
The 12 strong group of Residents accompanied by local Cllr’s and RotherFed staff gathered in the Neighbourhood Centre ready to hear 30 of the local infant school’s children to sing festive hymns and traditional carols to the group that they planned to perform in their Christmas concert, followed by a buffet lunch for both the residents and children.
The group provided the children with small bags of sweets as a thank you for the service and a selection box each provided by RotherFed staff as a thank you for the entertainment provided. The group are already starting to plan next year’s event and hoping to make it even bigger than the last two years.
