Around 145 people attended a Christmas carol evening and nativity play at Ashford Cattle Market – featuring live donkeys, cows and sheep!
Brockhill YFC arranged the nativity play with Bill Jones and wife Hilary, from Spring Grove School, narrating the story of Christmas and leading the carols.
There were free mince pies, mulled wine and apple juice, donated by Perry Court and Hobbs Parker.
A Christmas hamper (donated by Perry Court) was raffled and raised close to £400.
Sally Field, R.A.B.I regional manager for the South East said: “People were stunned by the beauty of the event- with a live baby Jesus as well as live animals! We will definitely look to repeat this event next year.”
Thank you to Richard Beaugie and his team for organising the event and Hobbs Parker for their continued support and for allowing us to use their facilities.
