Members of the Carradale community gathered around the village Christmas tree for a festive evening of carol singing on Sunday.

Many residents and visitors attended the carol service at which £122 was collected; this will be donated to Carradale Primary School to help fund a treat for the children.

At the service, hot drinks were served in disposable cups by Jennifer Conley, Trish Collins and Marlene Baillie, but many villagers brought their own mugs to reduce waste.

There was a number of seats available for those less steady on their feet and, again, some people brought along their own chairs.

There was lots of festive headgear on display, from reindeer antlers to holly headbands, and Santa Claus himself even paid a visit.

The safety of the community was of paramount importance, with those present keeping a safe distance from others and wearing face masks during the event.

Councillor Alastair Redman, who attended the carol service, said: ‘It was great to meet up with so many friends.

‘A huge thanks to all of the organisers and everyone who contributed to this fantastic event.’
