Lights Of Love carols strike right chord despite freezing temperatures

Due to seasonal weather, last Sunday’s Carols in Warwick’s Market Square had to be moved at the last minute to the ballroom at the Town Council’s offices!

People were met at the Christmas Tree in the Square and taken by Rotarians to the warm festive room where the Community Band was waiting.

Warwick Mayor Cllr Parminder Singh Birdi and Warwick Rotary Club President Keith Talbot accompanied by Warwick Town Clerk Mrs Jayne Topham, greeted over a hundred people to the service to dedicate the Lights of Love which have been hung on the tree in the Market Square, commemorating those we have loved and lost.

A short carol service was led by Revd. Jonathon Hearn, Vicar of St Paul’s. Readings relating to loss of loved ones were made by Rotary President, the Mayor, Town Clerk and Revd. Hearn, which were interspersed by our favourite carols. Warwick Community Band provided the music and the young children from Emscote and All Saints Junior school choir sang beautifully.

Warwick Rotary, Tree of Love Carol Service

The tree donated by Barn Close Nurseries, is now covered with cards donated by loved ones and will be left up until the New Year.

There is still time to place a card on the tree, by completing a form and return to the Tourist Office, Claridges, Torreys, or the Post Office in Warwick. They will stay on the tree until January 3rd.

Proceeds will be shared between Myton Hospice and the Mayor’s charities. Names of those remembered on the tree are shown next to the tree, and on the Rotary website www.warwickrotary.org.uk.
