Carol Singing with the Salvation Army Band in the Gut, North Shields Fish Quay. Over 40 people attended the Quay and the short service followed by Mulled Wine and warm Mince Pies in the Old Low Light Heritage Centre.

Mike Hardy, Chief Executive Northumberland Inshore Fisheries & Conservation Authority (NIFCA) attended as did Fisheries Patrol Vessel St. Aidan, and her crew who joined us from sea for the service.

Supt. Peter Dade mentioned that the St.Aidan was the vessel he did service of dedication & blessing for last year.

Thanks to the Salvation Army Band North Shields who were excellent and kept us singing heartily! And to Bob Bell for playing at the short service.

Supt. Dade expressed his thanks to North Shields Fish Quay Company Limited and to MD Nik Hanlon, for their co-operation, to the Old Low Light Heritage Centre and to Manager Pearl Saddington for use of Old Low Light.
