The Playhouse Pre-School group also celebrated Christmas, by presenting the nativity story to parents and friends assembled in the Chapel. Rather than expect each child to learn a speaking part, they held dolls (Mary, a baby, a shepherd, a wise man, etc.) and as their teacher read the story, at the appropriate point each child took its doll and put it in the nativity scene which had been set up on a table. It was very effective, and all present enjoyed it.
Local madrigal group, Musyck Anon provided an enjoyable musical evening at Oat Street Chapel on the 17th December. Despite inclement weather, forty or so people attended the concert and the reception hosted by Chapel members. The retiring collection raised £150 for the Evesham Talking Newspaper for the Blind.
