CHRISTMAS carols will be performed at a service at St John's Church on Wednesday, December 13.

Residents can get in the festive spirit in Kidderminster Road from 6.30pm, with popular carols sung by Lickey End and Fairfield school choirs.

Cllr Helen Jones, chairman of Bromsgrove District Council, which has organised the event, 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.”

Complimentary mince pies and drinks will also be on offer, while donations will be collected for the chairman's chosen charity NewStarts.
