Pupils perform carols for Sue Ryder patients

Pupils perform carols for Sue Ryder patients

about 80 pupils of Nettlebed Community School performed a Christmas concert for patients at the Sue Ryder hospice in the village. The children, from years three to six, sang a mixture of traditional and modern carols in front of a large Christmas tree in the reception area at Joyce Grove. The 30-minute recital, conducted by music teacher Dorothy Wyatt, included O Little Town Of Bethlehem, Hark The Herald Angels Sing and Oh Come All Ye Faithful as well as contemporary songs The Hand of Peace and Calypso Carol. Patients watched from the comfort of sofas and armchairs while enjoying a hot drink and were given sheets with the words so they could sing along. Headteacher Stella Cranston said: “It was very successful and lovely event which really captured the true spirit of Christmas. It was very moving at times and the children sang beautifully, bringing a real element of festive cheer. We’ve been doing this for some time now and the pupils always look forward to it.”
