A HEAVY downpour preceded the annual mass carols service at The Rec last Wednesday.
Pupils from Queen’s College, Queen’s College Junior, GHS, Stepping Stone, Hoërskool Hangklip and Balmoral Girls’ Primary School joined their voices in song from the grandstand during the service titled ‘Nine Lessons and Carols.’
Parents and friends made themselves comfortable on the field to watch and participate in the popular event, which was organised by Jill Haxton with the main message by Reverend BB Mfenyana.
With favourites such as Away in a Manger, Hark the Herald Angels sing and We wish you a merry Christmas reverberating through the air, it was truly an evening of joy and peace, which set the tone for the onset of the festive season.
A collection in aid of the SPCA and Child Welfare in Komani was taken during the event. – Rep reporter
