Our LIVE Nativity was our best ever. It was a perfect setting in the Riding Stables, Sand School with a Christmas Stable for the patient  donkeys.

We were honoured to have Inspired Instrumentalists  and Singing for Fun to set the scene.  And this year we had James Watt to set up our PA system so everyone could hear and participate.   

Our Volunteers directed people to their seats, helped them buy raffle tickets and of course, took any kindly offered donations.  Amanda, our Rangers Cafe Manager, and her team served the mulled wine and mince pies. The atmosphere was brimming with excitement as Reverend Shirley Tupper opened the service. 

The Day Service Customers wended their way through the audience in character as Mary, Joseph and Shepherd leading goats with our Dales Farm Manager, Bethany.   The audience, joined in, enthusiastically with all our carols and our Day Service Customers signed to Silent Night.   

It was a family event full of Christmas spirit and goodwill.  And we'd like to thank all our hard working staff and volunteers who made this Nativity such a success.
