Choirs, singing and music fill the pages of this week’s Courier and the town’s public spaces.

Castlehill’s P7s and their teachers sang carols to entertain shoppers at Tesco, last Thursday evening, to raise funds for their four day to trip to Edinburgh next year.

Many of these performances have been given virtually for free or for a small donation.

This is a good reminder that Christmas should be about sharing. The value of a gift should not reflect its price tag and this theme has been continued by at least three ministers.
