Brethren and families are seen here getting ready for the annual Nine Lessons and Carols service at St Stephen’s Church in Soundwell on Sunday. The Provincial Grand Master, Tim Henderson-Ross, who has never missed one of these services in the past ten years of his tenure, read the ninth lesson. Once more, his wife Trish accompanied him, as did both of the Assistant PGMs. Mark Smith congratulated organisers, Jeff and Christine Dando, and for laying on tea and sandwiches, very welcome on a cold, wet evening. As a result of the generosity of the congregations, Jeff has sent the £300 collection to St Peter’s Hospice.
