Wonderful carol-singing at London Bridge station... the LOGS group, based at Precious Blood Church, plus various members of the Pr Bl congregation, including a fine bass singer, and a delightful small girl with pigtails, who held the collection-bag through which we raised a goodly sum of money which will be split between two charities that we are supporting this year.

After our singing, we repaired to the parish house, where we were greeted with candles and prosecco and a large festive table....the youngest member of LOGS,  recently graduated from University, had volunteered to cook dinner for us all. It was most efficiently done: she prepared it, joined us for the singing while it was all gently cooking, then returned before us to do the final preparations.  We all enjoyed drinks and delicious nibbles first, and then before saying Grace the Rector announced that a generous benefactor had covered the entire costs of the dinner.  This meant that a donation that each of us had made could go instead to our this  further added to the funds raised...

It was a very, very enjoyable evening. Speeches and laughter and a celebratory poem noting the various achievements of LOGS since its foundation just a few years ago...and the distribution of this year's programme of events which includes our big annual project for London schools, a pilgrimage - by river - and various meetings and talks.
