This evening was the Clayton-le-Woods Christmas Tree lights switch on at Clayton Green. The turn out must be a record as the crowds filled the green and also the pavement across the A6. This year’s had the bonus of more lights on the adjacent trees. Music was by the Chorley Silver Band and carol singing by local children.

Drove to Withnell Fold Chapel for just after 10:30am as service is due at 11am. he reason for my visit is that this may be the last proper service as the church is due for closure and to be sold off sometime in the future. I’d previously phoned Rev Karen Hilsden to arrange.
