Vernon has been getting into the Christmas spirit at many events across Gedling. On 4th December he attended his first carol concert with Netherfield & Colwick Senior Citizens Club and enjoyed the Netherfield Christmas light switch-on with Councillor Nikki Brooks, Gedling Mayor Meredith Lawrence and his wife Wendy. Then, he donned his party hat at the Carlton House Christmas Party (all pictured below).
He also enjoyed carols from Arnold Churches Together at Arnold Methodist Church and was very pleased to attend Gedling Borough Council's Civic Carol Service at St Paul's Church, Daybrook, on 12th December. The audience were treated to performances by the Newstead Male Brass Band and the Carlton Male Voice Choir. Vernon is pictured below at the service with Wendy Lawrence, Gedling Mayor Meredith Lawrence and Reverend Sally Baylis.
