School choirs on song at community carol concert in Aylsham
- Credit: Submitted
It was standing room only for Aylsham's annual community carol concert.
St Michael's Parish Church hosted the event which was organised with the town's Rotary club - with some visitors queuing for up to 45 minutes beforehand to secure their seat.
Choirs from John Of Gaunt School, Aylsham Parish Church, Bure Valley School, The Vocalights, Little Stars and Blue Notes entertained the audience.
The latter three were led by Claire Lawrence, who also performed a solo.
Aylsham Town Band also performed and Henry Macey led a community singalong on the church organ.
After the concert, volunteers from the Rotary served mulled wine with mince pies, providing an opportunity for a festive chat.
This year's retiring collection raised over £500 to be split equally between Hana's Gift and the Matthew Project.
