HINCKLEY’S annual outdoor carol service brought some festive spirit to Hinckley town centre on Friday evening (13 December).

Adults and children braved the freezing cold weather to gather around the Christmas tree in the Market Place to sing a number of well-known carols. They were joined by the Mayor of the Borough, Councillor Lynda Hodgkins and accompanied by musicians from Living Rock Church and a choir from St Mary’s School, Hinckley.

This year’s service was organised by Churches Together and the Borough Council and led by Reverend Simon Wearn, Rector, Holy Trinity Church in Hinckley.

Executive Member for Town Centre’s at the Borough Council, Cllr Keith Nichols said:

On a chilly Friday this annual event once again brought our community together to celebrate Christmas. Hinckley town centre was full of atmosphere and the carols, readings and community involvement reinforced the true meaning of Christmas. It made for a very seasonal and joyful occasion. Thanks to all those who attended.
