Carols in the square

Warwick Mayor Cllr Richard Edgington and Rotary Club President Elect Keith Talbot welcomed over a hundred people last Sunday to a service of dedication in Warwick Market Square for the Lights of Love on the town Christmas tree which remember those we have lost.

A short carol service was led by Revd. Vaughan Roberts, Vicar of St Mary’s. Readings relating to loss of loved ones were made by Rotarian Keith Talbot, the Mayor, Town Clerk Jayne Topham and Revd. Roberts, which were interspersed by our favourite carols.  Warwick Community Band provided the music and members of “Warwick – A Singing Town” provided choral support.

After a difficult year many were emotional and welcomed being able to sing safely in the open air. Fortunately, it was a mild evening, and as the sun set the lights on the Christmas tree were turned on. The tree donated by Barn Close Nurseries, is now covered with cards donated by people remembering loved ones and will be left up until the New Year.

There is still time to place a card on the tree, please complete a form and return to the Tourist Office, Claridges, Torreys, or the Post Office in Warwick. They will stay on the tree until Jan 3rd.

Proceeds will be shared between Myton Hospice and the Mayor’s charities. Names of those remembered on the tree are shown next to the tree, and on the Rotary website.
