Côr Meibion “shine” at Llandudno Lifeboat Carol Service
On Sunday, Llandudno lifeboat station successfully hosted a Christmas Service at the new boathouse in Craig-y-Don.
The lifeboat was placed outside and replaced by seats which were filled by one hundred and forty, crew, volunteers, friends and family. The Llandudno RNLI family were delighted to be also joined by Côr Meibion Colwyn in this early celebration of Christmas.
Everybody enjoyed the opportunity to sing their favourite carols and hear Christmas Readings from several RNLI volunteers and family members. The Côr Meibion (male voice choir) sang a fabulous selection of their Christmas repertoire delighting all those who attended. Their singing was described by a guest as “wonderful, uplifting and embodying the true spirit of Christmas”.
The Canon Phillip Barratt, Lifeboat Station Chaplain, provided a final Prayer and blessing to the congregation and a special prayer of protection for the serving crew as they continue in their endeavours of saving lives at sea.
At the end of the Carol Service refreshments were provided to everyone by the volunteers of the fundraising team. This was yet another great example of the Llandudno lifeboat family coming together to ensure another successful event at the boathouse.
