We woke to the first snow of the winter.

Schools broke up for the Christmas break - some children even came home at midday.

It was cold for those on the Farmers Market.

Thanks to John E for these last two pictures. These are the Church in Abingdon Carol Singers. They shocked bystanders by singing "While Shephers Watched Their Flocks" to the original tune - "On Ilkley Moor bar t'at".

i thought the promised snow for us was a terrible anti-climax - certainly not enough for a snowman - barely a snowball.

And if anybody does want to hear 'While Shepherd's Watched' to the 'Ilkley Moor Baht'at' tune come to Trinty at 10:00 on Sunday 20th. A small group of us - The Trinity Choir Renegades - will be singing it, and some other little known carol's, before the service.
