A choir will sing at a church's festive market to enable it to host family activities.

All Saints’ Church in Leavesden wants to raise £2,000 from its Christmas market on December 7.

The funds will be used to make repairs to the church and its hall such as kitchen facilities.

The Grade II-listed building had roof repairs six years ago and has been paying for the work ever since.

This meant it has not been able to pay for parts of the church that have fallen into disrepair.

The church last year raised £1,700 from the market and said the repairs will help them be able to give more support to the community by hosting family activities.

The church's vicar, Father Eddie Green, said: “It is really important that we raise more money so we can make these vital repairs and give more support to our local community.

“We do this by holding activities like the Tots and Teddies sessions, which are free to parents with babies and toddlers and gives them a chance to meet other families.

“Last year the response from the community and local businesses was fantastic.

“I would like to say thank you to everyone who supported us.”

The market run from 10.30 am to 2.30 pm. This year there will be a choir singing traditional Christmas songs.There will also be face painting, games and a Santa’s grotto.
