The evening was still and dark, but the candles shone brightly for the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust's annual Christmas carol service at Devizes Wharf. Conducted by Rev. Susan Rodd from Marlborough, grandparents and families with children and restless dogs stood on the wharfside and sang many popular carols. After the service branch members of the K&A Trust served mulled wine, orange juice and tea to the singers, together with some very tasty miniature mince pies. It was a lovely evening, and thoroughly enjoyed by all the children present.
Devizes Town Band played the carols beneath a very conveniently placed street light.
