Being a Local

I’ve lived in Crediton, Devon for a couple of months now but I feel like I’m still settling in and it doesn’t quite feel like home yet. However I thought it would be good to be a local and get a bit festive by attending the local Christmas Carol Sing a Long in the town.

Down to the Square

I was joined by a less enthusiastic Nathan who didn’t feel he was in the Christmas spirit at all and wasn’t too keen to sing carols! However we walked down the road to Crediton Square and joined quite a crowd of people gathered round the orchestra (Crediton Town Band) and choirs singing carols led by the local Priest.

A Christmas Vocal

We popped a few pound into the charity bucket and got ourselves a song lyric sheet. Now we were ready to sing! We sung a couple of carols and it was really nice to join in with the orchestra and choirs amongst the Christmas lights in the trees and local people of my new home town. Even better the money raised from the event would be going to the local branch of Age Concern which is a worthy cause in my eyes.

Ready for Din Dins

After all that singing and festive cheer we were ready to mosey on back down the highstreet to get some dinner. We settled on a Wetherspoons tea and I enjoyed a curry which certainly enhanced my cold!!
