This Christmas church carries back loads of memories from my childhood as my East Whitby main school would, and still does, keep their carol service here. The whole college would go on a bus to get there, which in itself was quite interesting; once you were there, you would look out from the balcony for which ever relative would look down at you. Once you've situated your family member, for the entire carol service, you'd lock your eyes in touch with them and then, from deep within your soul, sing every song to your family member with such emotion! These would-be songs like the Little Donkey, you'd feel every move that little donkey took on the dusty highway and turn the kid
