We were robbed for the last two years of our carol service by the pandemic – do you remember carols under the street light in 2020 and the singalong in front of the pub in 2021. So this year we are back inside (in the warm!) for carols music and readings accompanied by Pat’s Clarinet Choir, who will play some carol arrangements from 3.45 – so make a point of coming early! To be followed by mulled wine/cider and mince pies. The real start of the festive season!
