A community centre was packed with singers last weekend for a carol concert.

The Carols for the Community concert, entitled First Light, was held at Coombes Community Centre, in Burns Road, Royston, last Sunday and organised by Margaret MacCormack with the backing of the Royston Community Association.

Mrs MacCormack said: “Members of Rainbow Playgroup dressed as angels took part by singing their favourite Christmas songs, while children from Roysia, Studlands Rise and Roman Way schools provided choirs that performed many lovely songs and carols.

“The Electralites majorettes danced dramatically to an upbeat version of Light of Mine and the Ignite youth group wrote and performed poems, dance, and sketches expressing the hope of the first Christmas morning.”

Mother and daughter Sarah and Ali Camp led the carols, with the accompanying band consisting of Tim Leggett and James Owen on guitar, Andrew Camp on the drums and Ali Palmer on the electric violin.

Mrs MacCormack added: “Families really enjoyed this event and celebrated with cakes and mince pies decorated in the festive theme. All the choirs thoughtfully contributed with their choice of songs and all the families left with a gift of a candle tree decoration that had been made by the students at the schools.”
