    Outdoor nativity for Smithills

    Smithills Fellowship staged its first outdoor Nativity to bring the Christmas story to 250 people in the area. Every year they do a nativity, but this was the first time they had performed the drama at the local farm.

    Adults and children were joined by a donkey, sheep, llamas and goats. As well as acting out the story, they sang carols accompanied by a small brass band.

    Revd Vinny Whitworth said, "Everyone enjoyed the nativity. It was a great way of bringing the true meaning of Christmas to the community." Smithills Fellowship is part of St Peter's, Halliwell.
