Family and friends can get into the Christmas spirit this year with carol singing at a community park.

The Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) community carol service will take place in Leavesden Country Park on December 11 at 6pm.

The event last year was attended by more than 400 people and raised more than £400 for YMCA’s work with people affected by homelessness.

Dacorum community choir will be singing traditional carols such as Ding Dong Merily on High and O Come All Ye Faithful.

There will be free mulled wine, mince pies and hot chocolate.

Chief executive of YMCA Guy Foxell said: “This is a perfect opportunity for families to gather together with families, friend and neighbours.

“We look forward to singing traditional carols and enjoying refreshments in aid of the important local work for YMCA.”
