Members of LOGS, the Ladies Ordinariate Group, gathered to sing carols at a London care home for the elderly in the run-up to Christmas.
The traditional carols included all the old favourites "Away in a manger" "Hark the Herald angels" "O come all ye faithful" and more. LOGS have sung carols in previous Christmases at London Bridge station and in the popular Flat Iron Square near their home base at the Church of the Most Precious Blood at The Borough, but chose to sing at the care home this year for a special reason.
"We dedicated our 2019 carol-singing to Wilma Lambert, one of our founder-members, who died this Autumn" said chairman Joanna Bogle. "Wilma was a staunch member of LOGS, and one of our first meetings was at her home, with Wilma providing the refreshments. She was involved with all of our activities, from our London-wide schools projects to our annual carols, and we give thanks for all that she brought to the group and to the Church."
The carol-singing at the Tower Bridge Care Home will be followed up with other activities. "They have suggested that we return to do some more singing - old songs that everyone knows" said Joanna. "That's a plan for 2020 and we'll be there."
