Switching on the Christmas tree lights
Groomsport Village Association organized a short carol service in Groomsport Presbyterian Church on Friday 2nd December 2016 for the children of the village.
Following a welcome from Rev Christopher Miller and a scripture reading by Ashley McWhinney, there were readings by Keira Semple, Summer McWhinney, Ellis McWhinney, Tyler McReynolds, Cory McReynolds, Charlotte McClatchey, Anya Fawthrop and Rachel Cummings. Hymns included "Away in a Manger" and "Silent Night". Symmington Silver Band provided the music.
The Rev Miller gave a very appropriate address before we went outside for the Christmas Tree lights switch-on ceremony. Lady Sylvia Hermon MP organized the children to help her perform the switch-on.
Everyone crossed the road to the Walter Nelson Hall for some hot festive treats and a visit to Santa.
