Llandudno RNLI hold Christmas concert

RNLI Llandudno held a Christmas concert recently.

The lifeboat was placed outside and replaced by seats which were filled by one hundred and fifty, crew, volunteers, friends and family.

The Llandudno RNLI family were delighted to be joined once again by the Cor Meibion Colwyn.

Everybody enjoyed the opportunity to sing their favourite carols and hear Christmas Readings from several RNLI volunteers and family members, including a reading for Christmas by Samuel the son of Jonathan Woodhead, Lifeboat Crew. Cor Meibion Colwyn sang a fabulous selection of their Christmas repertoire delighting all those who attended.

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.

An invited guest said: ‘It made such a good start to Christmas. My wife and I were really impressed with the acoustics of the boat house, the architect really knew what he was doing. Cor Meibion was first class, first time either of us had heard them. But the show was stolen by the little boy’s reading, a star in the making there! It was uplifting and caused me to pause and reflect that there are greater things in this world than our petty day to day problems’.

A spokesperson for the RNLI explained: ‘we are very proud of this annual concert, the whole team come together to provide a very special Christmas event for our families, supporters, friends and the local community’.
