After a short interval, we shared the following items in the second half of the programme.

As we entered a more reflective part of the programme, Chris Shanks played the euphonium solo, In Gardens of Peace, before Assistant Band Sergeant Dorothy Neil shared some reflections on what Christmas would be like if the first Christmas had never happened. Our time of reflection was brought to a conclusion with the band playing Who Is He?
At the end of the meeting the band then played Jingle Bells during which we had a visit from a very special guest!
Thank you to everyone who came along tonight, we hope you enjoyed the programme and were reminded of the reason we celebrate Christmas..
