Christmas revellers packed St Mary’s Church, Melton, for the annual candlelight carol concert.
The event is traditionally part of the mayor’s fundraising programme and current incumbent John Wyatt was present to welcome guests from neighbouring local authorities.
Members of the public were also there to enjoy the singing of Melton Choral Society, with contributions from pupils of Swallowdale and Sherard Primary Schools and students from Brooksby Melton College’s Glee Club.
Rev Kevin Ashby took a service with assistance from the Rev Katrina Cumming. A reading was given by Young Mayor of Melton, Tara Dudhia.
Proceeds go to the church and the mayor’s charities.
