Roots Community Singers were out and about celebrating the festive season with  a varied and eclectic mix of gigs beginning in November with two very wet and cold performances at Coalville and Ashby lights switch on.

Volunteers from the choir were back in action the following day at the village’s highly popular Soupa Saturday, leading carols and playing seasonal music to a packed hall.

The final Christmas event was an old fashioned village carol sing around the Christmas tree at the Cross Keys, Newbold, followed by a lively social in the pub.
