Cranleigh Rotary’s Carol Concert, held in the Village Hall on 10 December 2014, once again heralded the start of the festive season.
Two schools had agreed to take part, but a bout of sickness unfortunately resulted in the late withdrawal of Cranleigh Primary. However, the choir from St Cuthbert Mayne gave a wonderful performance and the audience was happy to sing along with a selection of carols. Musical accompaniment was provided by the enthusiastic Cranleigh Youth Bands, led by Iain McDonald. The MC for the concert was Dr Claire Potter, the local Methodist Priest in Charge, who gave a new slant on the Nativity Story by asking the audience and children to add various sound effects.
The retiring collection was in support of the Cranleigh Food Bank, and members of the Rotary Club agreed to round off the sum donated to £250.
