Earlier start for carols

TODMORDEN’S annual town carol service will be held on Christmas Eve at an earlier time this year.

The service will take place at St Mary’s Church at 6.30pm. Todmorden Community Brass Band will accompany the carols and there will be readings by councillors and ministers from around the town.

The hour-long service is being held at the earlier time this year to make it more convenient for families with children to attend.
