The Sallies

Every year the Sallies travel around the city streets playing carols and collecting funds and food items.  They are very thorough and even come up our little cul-de-sac.

Last night I first heard them behind our neighbours who are on another street.  There was then a quiet period while they came around and up another cul-de-sac before arriving here.

Although I didn't get a photo of them most of the neighbours were outside listening and making donations.


  1. I used to love it when the Sally Army used to come through Shrewsbury market at Christmastime and play carols (big trombone and all) I had a veggie stall there during the eighties. The atmosphere was brilliant and Christmassy.

  2. I have a lot of time for the Salvation Army, Susan. They do such good work and their carol playing is lovely.
