  2021 Christmas activities

This year it was good to be able to enjoy our Village Carol Service again, it was still a little different with the wearing of masks, but we still enjoyed singing and listening to the Band and our new Choir.  

We also held our first Walking Nativity, the Band joined us as we set off from the Village Hall through to the Church collecting the Nativity Characters on the way.

The Carol by Candlelight service was enjoyed by all who attended and we enjoyed the three pieces that the Choir sang.

The Brass Band continued the tradition of playing carols at Christmas although instead of playing around our village at each house, we arranged to play in a number of different locations.  This was very successful playing at the end of Boundary Lane, Windy Arbour crossroads, the Village Green, Bidlea Dairy and the Black Swan.

Lower Withington Methodist Church was built in 1808 and opened on Easter Sunday. 

The brass band continues with the tradition that started in 1856 playing Carols through the village on the Monday night before Christmas, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day morning.
