  • Boarders' Christmas Celebrations

    6 December, 2017

    On Sunday 3rd December, the boarders from Marsden and Watson Houses, along with boarding staff and guests, enjoyed a lovely meal in the dining room. Thanks go to Matt Hitchens and his catering team for the meal of roast turkey, ham, roast potatoes, honeyed carrots and green beans after having spring rolls for a starter.

    We then went across to the chapel for a beautiful Christmas service – thank you Father Paul.

    After the service we all gathered on the chapel lawn for a wonderful array of desserts – individual plum puddings, individual pavlovas, lots of shortbread biscuits, Christmas decorated cupcakes and lollies!

    The boarders presented Father Paul with 2 hampers – one from each house – they contained gifts for charity, such as food, toiletries etc. We will now be taking these hampers to the Cathedral on Wednesday evening when we have our Annual Carols Service.

    Thank you to our guests for the evening - Mr and Mrs O’Connor and Father Paul.

    Thank you to Brad and Lucinda who did most of the organising – the tree, tinsel, Christmas crackers for the tables  etc.
