ITS BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS
Especially now the village green has been lit up and the Christmas tree decorated. Thanks must go to village stalwarts Rob and Marylin Boeuf who have carried out this task as of now and over the past few years. Comments in the village so far indicate that this years effort is superb and equal or even better than previous years. Much appreciated!! Well done both!!
ST. BARTHOLOMEW’S CHURCH
Sunday 28th November was “Advent Sunday” and the appropriate service took place at the local church. The service commenced at the usual time of 9:30am and consisted of a service of Advent Lessons and Carols. These were conducted by Worship Leader Janet Webb. Organist: Geof Webb. Advent Sunday is the Sunday when an Advent Wreath is placed in church, with candles which are lit one by one as the weeks progress through the period of watching and waiting until the celebration of the coming of Christ at Christmas!
The next service on Sunday 4th December (second Sunday in Advent) will be a “Family Service”. Please come along and bring the family! The service starts at the usual time of 9:30am. Everybody welcome.
Many villagers may have watched “Morning Live” on Monday morning 29th November on BBC 1 at approximately 9:15am. The subject was non other than defibrillators and the location of same and instructions for use. The programme went on to show what happened when a member of public (a lady in this instance) suffered a sudden cardiac arrest whilst out shopping! Passing members of the public applied CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) an ambulance was called and the nearest defib machine location was sought, while others tried to remember where the life saving machine was located. Do you know where the machine is located in your village? Please take note! The nearest Community Defibrillator is located outside Sutton Cum Lound Village Hall on Town Street and is available 24 x 7. Another option is sited outside Lound Village Hall, Town Street, Lound.
