Loddon carol concert

I am looking forward to the annual primary schools carol concert at the Loddon Valley leisure centre. The Council has just sent out the details for those interested:

Over 400 schoolchildren will be singing in the Christmas season at Loddon Valley Leisure Centre, Lower Earley at the annual Wokingham Borough primary schools’ carol concert this Sunday (December 14) at 5pm.

Wokingham Borough Mayor Cllr UllaKarin Clark will host the evening and all proceeds from the sale of programmes will go to her chosen charity. This year, Cllr Clark is setting up a fund, in association with the Wokingham charity more arts, to support and mentor deserving teenagers in the borough who are showing an aptitude for the arts but do not have the resources or opportunities to reach their potential.

Some 28 local schools will form the choir and have spent many hours over the past few weeks rehearsing for the annual event. The schools involved are: Aldryngton Primary, All Saints CE Primary, Colleton Primary, Crazies Hill CE Primary, Earley St Peters CE Aided Primary, Emmbrook Junior, Farley Hill Primary, Finchampstead Primary, Gorse Ride Junior, Grazeley Parochial CE Aided Primary, Hawthorns Primary, Hillside Primary, Keep Hatch Primary, Lambs Lane Primary, Loddon Primary, Nine Mile Ride Primary, Polehampton CE Junior, Radstock Primary, Rivermead Primary, Shinfield St Mary’s CE Junior, St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary, St Paul’s CE Junior, St Sebastian’s Primary, St Teresa’s Catholic Primary, Westende Junior, Whiteknights Primary and Winnersh Primary.

    Good that your council still allows such things for fear of offending non-Christians.
