  • ”Great O’s” Advent Carol Service, Friday December 14th at 7.30pm, We shall again be holding the ”Great Os” Advent Carol Service at St Thomas, Fairford. Conducted by Martin Le Poidevin from Clifton Cathedral. All are welcome to come and celebrate Advent. There will be a collection in aid of the Catholic Charity SPICMA and refreshments to follow.
    If you are interested in singing in the choir (drawn from local churches and Stroud Deanery) for this event please see the poster for further details or contact Monica Frewer.)
  • Winter Wonderland, Friday 14th December at 7pm & Saturday 15th December at 4pm, A Charity Concert of Music and Song by St Mary's Choir.
    Once again, the choir at St Mary’s will be holding their annual “Winter Wonderland Concert”.
    This year, there will be a slight change in arrangements. The concert will have the usual two performances, one in the evening of Friday December 14th, at 7pm, and the matinee performances on Saturday 15th December at 4pm. The afternoon performance enables some of our older residents in Cricklade or Fairford, who don’t like coming out at night, to join in the fun.
    Refreshments will be served after both performances, mince pies and a glass of wine or soft drink on the Friday evening, and a cup of tea or coffee and mince pies after the matinee performance on the Saturday afternoon. Concert tickets are on sale currently, from Tricia Snape on 01793 752179, or Animal Fayre Pet Shop in Cricklade High Street. The tickets cost £7.50 per adult and £2.50 for children under 12 yrs. Of age. The concert is very popular so don’t leave it too late and miss the chance to put you in the right mood for the Christmas Season.
    This year, the proceeds will be going to The Wiltshire Air Ambulance Service which has provided assistance for some sick Cricklade residents during the year. We hope to see you there.
