Tonight Alan Meiklejohn and his crew at Station 9 Gordon's Bay hosted a carols service on the beach in Gordon's Bay. It really was a magical evening of warm friendship, goodwill, happy families, a perfect sunset and gorgeous luminous glow sticks.By 7pm the beach was packed with picnic blankets and picnic baskets. There was plenty of parking available, children ran around and played on the sand or paddled in the shallows under the watchful eye of our rescue crew. Neighbours greeted, a volley ball game started and the NSRI volunteers got a chance to meet the crowd as they one by one presented their gifts and donations. A choir led the carols and Kim sold song sheets which included a little colouring-in competition. Don't forget to drop your entries into the box at the Station 9 base in the old harbour - ensure your child's name as well as their parents contact details are legible so that we can call the prize winners in each age category.Special thanks to Wesley van Graan and his band, choir and congregation from Urban Voice who lead the service, thank you to Spur, Gordons Bay Security, the Municipality and our friends at Postnet Gordon's Bay who sponsored the song sheets.Thank you also to all our wonderful friends and supporters who attended and so generously filled our rescue vehicle to the brim with donations. This is the start of an annual tradition, we can't wait to do it again.img_7104img_7108Tony and Miranda Messina Tony and Miranda Messinaimg_7109img_7111img_7113img_7114img_7115img_7116img_7120img_7122img_7124img_7126img_7127img_7128img_7129img_7130Seuntjie was so excited about the carols evening he could hardly stand still Seuntjie was so excited about the carols evening he could barely stand stillimg_7132 Alan and his fundraising team selling glow sticks.
