My guest today was DAVE ROLES who is the Pastor for the “River of life” Church in Hartcliffe.  We learned of the history of this independent Church and how it has grown over the years and is now a thriving Church serving the community i9n Harclifffe and the surrounding areas.  In particular Dave told us of the Third running of a Nativity Walk held just before Christmas last year when some 700 people attended a series of presentations, 500 of which were children,  I was supported by a member of the Silversounds team Tim  Lloyd - Yeates who told us of the new ventures taking place in some Care Homes.

I played my usual mix of music from earlier days.
