A NEW Year's Eve ceremony at Cirencester Parish Church will formally end the town's Abbey 900 celebrations.

The Eucharist ceremony will be on Sunday, December 31 at 10am. 

During the service, the Abbey 900 will be handing over its commemorative artwork to the care of the Bingham Library Trust, which will look after it for the community. 

The trust will display it when it can and it will be available for anyone it thinks is suitable to take care of it for short term or long term loans.

Residents in Cirencester are invited to join the service. A glass of fizz will be served at the end of the service to celebrate the events and projects that have been enjoyed throughout the year.

Orders of Service are in the Vestry for anyone who wants an advance copy.
