Christmas on a Van

On the evenings of 20th-23rd December, we have been lent a van by Vic Young (South Shields) Ltd to bring some Christmas cheer to the parish. As last year we will be playing carols, including some recorded by Rickleton Primary and Fatfield Academy and have a nativity display to look at from your doorsteps to point us all to the real meaning of Christmas.

 

We also thank Sunderland City Council for their support in this project.

 

We will try and give an approximate route, but we cannot guarentee what time they will be in your street.

 

So look out for the van.
