That was the verdict of those who sampled the worship and humour of the annual Christmas Carol Festival held by the Filey and District Probus Club. The varied programme presented a mixture of traditional carols, songs, and “funnies” to around 140 club members and guests in St Oswald’s parish church. Probus club president Peter Barker welcomed the mayor and mayoress of Filey, John and Susan Shackleton; Probus officers from the surrounding towns, and representatives of the Lions, Masons and Rotary. Fr Andrew Smith, of Filey’s Catholic church, acting as compere, introduced all the performances, beginning with the first of two appearances by the Filey Ebor Academy Choir. Then came a heart-warming John Betjeman poem, ‘Christmas’, read by Peter Barker’s wife, Sandra, and ‘No Room at the Inn!’ sung by June Stanwell. Amusement was prompted by two acts – the Rev Robert Hall’s ‘It’s a Mystery to Me’ and a song from the ‘Mrs Beamish’ collection given by vicars, the Rev Andrew Allington and the Rev Liz Kitching. Local musician Robert Hartley strummed his guitar to give his version of ‘Mary’s Boy Child’ to complete yet another memorable festival, which has been a Filey feature since 2009. All the ministers, including the Rev Graham Morgan, of the Methodist Church, joined forces to give the dismissal and blessing.
