Caddington Grove’s residents, families and neighbours got in the Christmas spirit with a mulled wine and mince pie reception.

Kelly Cox, Caddington Grove’s community relations lead, said: “Carols by Candlelight is a magical event and a fantastic opportunity for us to finish the year celebrating with our community friends who’ve supported us throughout 2019.

“The singers were in fine voice, and the combination of Christmas songs and mulled wine left us all feeling warm and happy.

“Thank you to all the choirs who took part and to everyone who attended and made it such a beautiful event.”
