THE Sundays of Advent in Powick church have been marked by the lighting of candles on the Advent wreath.

On the second Sunday, a Christingle service took place with the lighting of two candles by Suzanna and Roxanna Freely; and last Sunday the three candles were lit by Rita Walker.

On Christmas Eve, Midnight Communion will begin at 11.30pm. The Christmas Day service will be Communion at 11am. The last service of 2013, Sunday, December 29, will be held at Madresfield Church at 10.30am and will be a 4 in Faith Communion service for the whole benefice.

Å Last Friday, Link Nurseries celebrated Christmas with a coffee morning that included a raffle and shop. The highlight was a visit from five members of the Chase Brass Band who accompanied the singing of carols, while Christmas wreaths were being made by the staff.

Å In recent weeks there has been concern over the proposed development of housing off Sparrowhall Lane.

A site meeting was held by Malvern Hills District Council prior to a meeting at the Bank House. Last Tuesday a public meeting, called by Tom Wells, took place in Powick parish hall attended by parish councillors and residents of Colletts Green and Bastonford.

The main concern was the impact on traffic and access to and from the A449 via Sparrowhall Lane and The Drive.
