The Pearson Family annual tradition continued this year with Clive playing the church organ at St. Mary’s Church, Wilshaw’s Christmas Day Service. Above is Clive playing the first hymn of the service, “Christians Awake Salute This Happy Morn!”
On Thursday December 20th the hearse took a detour on the way back from a funeral after we spotted The Flying Scotsman making its way up the Colne Valley. Due to a helpful red signal on the line we were able to catch up with her down at Tunnel End, Marsden.
Our sponsored team Golcar under 9’s once again did us proud winning 8-1 against Norristhorpe taking them through to the quarter finals. They have managed to stay undefeated all season and have the cup in their sights.
After hearing an appeal for much needed food, Clive and daughter Bethany paid a visit to the local food bank in Meltham with a Christmas gift of Fray Bentos Pies.
On Sunday 9th December a remembrance service took place at St. Mary’s Church, Wilshaw which was part of a nation wide remembrance with National Candle Lighting. This was a special service for parents who have lost a child.
Everyone was invited to light a candle on the memorial tree which had been made by Peter Pearson of Pearson Funeral Service.
