Southwick - Down Your Way

The members of the local RAOB -GLE, North Durham Province, Pride of the Wear Lodge and local Southwick veterans would like to say a massive thank you to Pastor Peter and all the congregation of The MICC- Chapel of Light (Old St Columbus) for the excellent evening of Christmas carols and dinner to honour the Southwick veterans held on Friday, December 23.

This event was arranged by the congregation to celebrate the support and friendships which have been formed with The Chapel Of Light over the past four years since the local RAOB veterans started the remembrance Sunday service at the cenotaph on the Green Southwick. The warm welcome, hospitality, choir singers, service, gifts and food provided was excellent and a real credit to the congregation. Although small in numbers, the veterans had a really enjoyable night and were humbled by the high esteem that they are held in by the Chapel of Light congregation and are already looking forward to next year’s Remembrance Sunday where they can once again meet up and renew old friendships and acquaintances.
