Wishing to reinstate the Harwich Hospital “Carols Around the Christmas Tree”. A Harwich resident opened his wonderful garden to neighbours and invited guests one evening during the run up to Christmas.
Tendring Brass set the festive mood as everyone arrived, Reverend Margaret welcomed everyone present and the band were joined by Harwich Sing to lead the guests in an hour of carol singing.
Although rain had been forecast the evening stayed dry as we enjoyed the soup, mulled wine and mince pies, which along with a splendid tombola, helped to raise over £1000 for Macmillian Nurses.
The organiser is hoping that the success of this initial event may become part of Christmas Celebrations in Harwich once again.
