About every two or three years, owing to the organisation, our Church put on a Christmas Pageant. This was like a nativity play but was held in the church it self. The majority of those who attended the church were asked to take part. So it ranged from all ages young and old.
Their were several little angels in white from the Sunday school. Angel Gabriel was played by a handsome young man we all took a shine to. I must say I had always wanted to play Mary but this never happened as I was so tall and not angelic enough. So was delighted when I was asked to be one of the two big angels. Until I discovered I had to stand at the back on a stool in one of the corners holding a long trumpet. I realise now that I was chosen for my height. My partner angel and I were dressed in yellow with large gold wings and I found the standing on the stool on the night in question to be very nerve racking trying to keep my arms straight with the trumpet ( These days of health and safety it would not be allowed). Fortunately the event took place only once after one of the evening services and most of the excitement was getting dressed up. I was assigned to helping the little angels get ready and the whole evening was well attended. Being part of this sticks well into my memory as it was now well over fifty years ago.
