Combined Rotary Carol Service

Wed, Dec 15th 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Borderland Rotary have again organised their Christmas Carol Service to include all local Rotary Clubs, Rotakids, families and friends.

St John's Church, Whittington

At St John the Baptist Church, Whittington


Athough Carols start at 7:00 pm everyone is advised to be early to find a good seat in St John's Church.  Whittington Castle car park can be used, or the car park at Ye Olde Boot, if you are joining the gathering there afterwards.  If a table meal is required there, booking early is essential.


From the collection £70 was donated to the Church and £70 to Oswestry Food Bank.
