Then came confirmation in All Saints church, Upton taken by the Bishop of Grimsby.
The Christmas Tree festival was a great success with around 20 trees decorated and donated by village organisations, businesses and local residents. The tombola stall during the weekend was well supported.
The weekend finished off with a carol service with the Methodist congregation
Taken by Rev Phillip Wain.
The Christmas morning Eucharist was also well supported.
