Carols at Normanton Church

14th December: I go to a lot of carol concerts in the weeks before Christmas, but this one was special – in that icon of Rutland, Normanton Church on the edge of Rutland Water. In support of the East Midlands Immediate Care Scheme @EMICS999 . The path to the venue was very suitably lit using little blue flashing lights!

We all left the concert feeling full of Christmas music & good cheer. Thanks to Rutland Choral for a wonderful performance. Fabulous setting on Rutland Water .
