However the Christmas Feast on Friday was the best I have ever had at Abberley. Locally sourced Turkey, sausages and bacon, bread sauce, sprouts galore – the works. The Top Year were in the Front Hall, 100s and Shells in the MDR and Rems, Form 2 and Form 1 in the PDR. The Kitchen Team had done brilliantly well to set up and make everything look special and they had a very efficient system operating so that serving and clearing happened smoothly and quickly.
It was lovely to see familiar faces, old boys (two generations), parents and grandparents, as well as new members of the congregation, both pupils and parents. The choir carried on with the same excellent standard of singing as they ended last term, performing John Rutter’s For The Beauty of the Earth with an assurance and enjoyment that was noticeable.
