The Christmas season got off to a great start with the Cranleigh Rotary Club’s village carol concert, held in the Cranleigh Village Hall on Wednesday December 5.
A full house of parents and young people enjoyed listening to the choirs of St Cuthbert Mayne, Cranleigh Primary and Park Mead Primary schools, accompanied by members of the Cranleigh Youth Wind Band and the Cranleigh Youth Jazz Ensemble.
The event was led by Jane O’Leary, a lay minister at the local Methodist Church and this year’s president of the Rotary Club of Cranleigh, who also gave a brief talk about the meaning of Christmas.
The retiring collection raised £195 for the Rotary charities.
Mrs O’Leary said: “Everyone said how much they enjoyed the singing and the music, The village is blessed to have so many talented young performers.”
Other charity fundraising events being held by the Cranleigh Rotarians include a street collection from December 13 to 15, and the Annual Rotary Sale, which will be held in the Village Hall on the morning of Saturday January 12. A wide variety of high quality items will be on sale, combined with a tombola. Entry is free. Light refreshments will be available.
