Residents are invited to get into the festive spirit at this year’s Community Carol Service in Bromsgrove.

The Council and Churches Together are holding the event on Wednesday December 13th at St John’s Church in Kidderminster Road.

As well as everyone’s favourite carols, sung by Lickey End and Fairfield school choirs, there will also be complimentary mince pies and a drink.

Council Chairman Cllr Helen Jones said: “This event is atmospheric and joyous and is one of my favourite of the year.

“It really gets me in the festive spirit and I hope as many people as possible can join me too.”

The service starts at 6.30pm and will see a collection for the Chairman’s chosen charity NewStarts.
