THE collections from the three Christmas Concerts by Powick Community Choir held at Stanbrook Abbey amounted to £600.

The choir committee has decided to add £400 from their funds, making a total of £1,000 for Maggs Day Centre in Worcester. Thank you to all who attended the concerts.

Last Sunday’s service at St Peter’s church marked Epiphany, and the Christmas tree was resplendent for the last time as the Christmas period ended on Monday, January 6. However, the crib stays up till February 2.

Powick Ramblers Walk will be held on Friday, January 17. Meet at Hawksbatch car park (GR 763777) at 10am for a fivemile walk in the Wyre Forest with leader Francis (01905 640197).
