Singing Shepherds at Riversdale school

Although I had to slip in late I still thoroughly enjoyed Riversdale’s Christmas play, which, although incorporating a lot of humour and some marvellous Bollywood angels,told the familiar Nativity story with authenticity and sensitivity.It concluded with the singing of my favourite contemporary anthem from school Christmas plays, ‘Hold your banners high’, which I first heard years ago when living in the Hertfordshire village of Pirton. So thanks to the school for the joy of the event, its retelling of the Christmas story of hope and peace, and for the nostalgia!
