Now it feels like Christmas! It was lovely to be with everyone at St Mary's Church, in Hartley Wintney on the first Sunday of Advent once again for the annual candlelit Service. And both daughters enjoyed ringing the bells before and afterwards!
Supported by all at St John's Church, The Churches Conservation Trust, Hartley Wintney Parish Council, The Elvetham Hotel, Hartley Arts Group and our fabulous organist, Martin Barnes, to name just a few, it is a much valued Advent Service by so many in the community.
Thanks to the Friends of St Mary's for organising it, and for all they do all year round to look after this special Church, which was built in 1234. If you have a few hours to spare once or twice in the year, could you join the team to help out? Drop me email if so: firstname.lastname@example.org
