A Christmas meal was on the menu for members of Halifax Salvation Army’s Ladies Fellowship.

The party began with a delicious festive dinner prepared and cooked by Roy Shaw and Andrea Wheelwright and ably served by “waiters” Bob Batchelor, Stuart Cater, Keith Meadows and Tim Robinson.

Audrey Batchelor, Bob Batchelor and Lynda Hill provided musical entertainment and the evening concluded with everyone joining in to sing carols.

Beryl Haigh presented gifts to the monthly refreshments-makers, Margaret Bagshaw and Sandra Newham, and treasurer Augrey Batchelor.

Audrey, in return, presented Beryl Haigh with flowers as thanks for leading the monthly meetings.

Meanwhile at another annual Salvation Army event, the Toy Service was led by Major Lois Robinson and was supported by the Band conducted by Lynda Hill.

The Mayor of Calderdale, Councillor Ann Martin and her Consort Mohammad Naeem, received the new, donated toys on behalf of the needy folk of Calderdale.

The musical guests for the evening were pupils of Ravenscliffe High School and Sports College with their music teachers Tony Simms and Lester Noel.

The students delighted the congregation with their singing. Santa arrived at the end of the service and gave all the children gifts.
