CHRISTMAS carols rang out from Saffron Walden Town Hall on Wednesday evening as the Salvation Army held their annual celebration.

A packed town hall was treated to traditional carols as well as a performance of the nativity by youngsters from the Jam Club, the Salvation Army's Sunday school.

Major Carol Evans said: "I think that the children really stole the show with their wonderful telling of the Christmas story and everybody really enjoyed it.

"The whole evening was a great success and it was really well supported by the town. Everyone was joining in with the singing and all of the carols went down well."

The carol concert is a free event held by the Salvation Army every year and the music is performed by Cambridge Salvation Army Band. The children performed scenes from the nativity between the songs and the readings. A collection was held at the end.
