The Friends of St George's Park enjoyed another successful Carols in the Park event on the evening of Friday 11 December. The event is now a fixture on the calendar of people in the local community who came out in force to sing carols, eat mince pies and drink mulled wine or hot chocolate in the park. As with all FoSGP events there was no charge, food and drink was given away free to 80 people attending the event, which is organised every December by the Friends in partnership with St George's Church. The weather this year was cool and too breezy for the candles we brought to stay alight, but despite the fact that the darkness was only illuminated by a few strings of fairy lights, a really great time was had by all. Nicky's delicious mince pies, Sue's mulled wine and Carol's seemingly endless supply of hot chocolate and shortbread fortified the hearty voices against the elements. We were very pleased to see so many old friends and supporters - besides those who came from the church we also welcomed our neighbours at Arden House, partners from Kidderminster and District Youth Trust and many other community members of all ages - including three dog walkers with their dogs. It was great to see such a traditional scene involving local families and visitors sharing the moment after dark, in St George's Park, Kidderminster.
