ALL SAINTS CHURCH COTTESBROOKE

CAROL SERVICE

 The Service was led by the Rev. Dr Judy Peck. During the Service 10 years old Edun Rowe  (pictured top left) played Christmas Music on his cello and children read the carols as well as grown-ups. Mince pies and sherry were served after the service. It was one of the best services ever.

INSPIRATIONAL SAYING

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me.

THE YOUTH OF OUR VILLAGE


Edun Rowe (Right) 10 years old started playing the Cello at school and was awarded a merit.

He auditioned for a place in the County Junior Strings in the summer and was invited to join in September.

Edun has been involved in several concerts at the Spinney Theatre, Northampton and will be playing at Derngate later this year.

THE CHRISTMAS FAYRE

Cottesbrooke Village Hall


Thanks to Suzie Bowley for organizing a spectacular Christmas Fayre. There were beautiful crafts for sale which were made by both local people and friends from nearby villages. Over £400 was raised for the Ama Ghar Orphanage in Nepal, congratulations to all of you who took part. Suzie is presently in Nepal as I write this.
