Carol singing with the Podsmead community

It was great to be out carol singing in Podsmead on Wednesday 20th December.

Working with the local PCSOs from Gloucestershire Constabulary and the Blackbridge Charitable Community Benefit Society, we were able once again to hold an event in Earls Park, and then later on in Scott Avenue.

For the first event we had The Salvation Army Gloucester band, and many thanks to Phil Webb and his colleagues for leading the music.

For choirs we had members of the Ecclesiastical Insurance Gloucester staff choir, which my wife Vicki runs, and the City of Gloucester Community Choir which we co-run, and the community sang along heartily. There was a brilliant turn out at both events and at Earls Park we had some lovely singing from young and old. We also had appearances from Santa 🎅

Ecclesiastical have generously offered to double any donations made on the night to the Salvation Army, which is fantastic news.

There were refreshments and more singing at Scott Avenue and my thanks go to Debbie, Debbie, Jim and Kelly-Marie for all they did to organise the events.

Truly the community spirit in Podsmead is alive and well.
