Wassailing 
Sunday 19th December 4pm at St Giles' Church

Wassailing welcomes in the season of Good News and Great Joy!
Park in the Memorial Gardens car park on Church Lane and meet at St Giles' at 4pm. We'll start by making our jingle sticks indoors, then we'll take a walk around the Memorial Gardens (jingling all the way :) and then come back to St Giles' for outdoor carols, mince pies and mulled cider.
The craft and carols will be wheelchair and buggy accessible but the walk will be dark and uneven, possibly muddy, with a few steps so bring a torch and sturdy shoes or boots.
No tickets are needed but it would help to know how many are coming for craft supplies and catering so please let the church office know. office@stokepogeschurch.org or 01753 642331
Appropriate covid measures will be in place indoors so please bring a face covering unless exempt.
