Organised by the Oulton Broad Community Enterprise (OBCE), the carols around the Christmas tree event on The Boulevard in Bridge Road was enjoyed by all.

With the band from the local church, Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Seniors from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Oulton groups and a solo singer getting everyone in the festive mood, the crowds joined in as numerous carols were sung.

Dominic Parkes, chairman of OBCE, said: 'We had a really good turnout and it was great to see all the families getting into the Christmas spirit.'
