Bryher Parents Will Get To See Nativity

The show will go on for Tresco and Bryher School pupils who are putting on a nativity play on Wednesday.

The stormy weather forecast had brought concerns that six Bryher pupils and their parents would have to miss out on the evening performance at St Nicholas Church on Tresco because of boating difficulties.

But Tresco schoolteacher, Suzannah Gates, says the Estate has found accommodation for family members.

Suzannah says they looked at several options including having the play at lunchtime, but many parents couldn’t make it due to work commitments.

Parents will be treated to a traditional nativity but Suzannah says they make sure everyone who wants a solo gets ones and she’s amazed at how much confidence the young kids have.

The nativity will be at 6.30pm tonight at St Nicholas Church.
