We have had some excellent club nights, particularly the ‘ Operation Christmas Child' shoe box packing which we take part in each years part of our parish contribution, and producing advent Christmas table decorations featuring figures from the nativity scene.

At this meeting we were visited by Jo and Audrey, Faith & Light organisers, who were made very welcome and were well impressed with their own advent creations - they are taking the instructions back to their groups!

We went to the annual Walsingham pilgrimage with the other F&L groups, a great day enjoyed by all; many groups made a weekend of it with a ‘fiesta’ style evening party, so we are thinking of staying over next year.

Next weekend we will be going to York for the F&L carol service, where we all sing in one of the city centre squares and have an advent service in St John’s University beforehand.

Our numbers for Lourdes are at 34 now, including some ‘guests' from various F&L groups. It is not too late to join in if anyone from Spanned would like to do so.

Finally, the date for F&L Candlemas has just been set as Sat 6 Feb 2016, at Rainworth, Notts. Details not yet announced, but Spanned groups welcome as usual.
