Carols kick off Christmas
TUNEFUL youngsters from the King’s School sang their hearts out at the school’s annual carol concert.
The candlelit event, held at Ottery Parish Church on Monday, December 13, was part of the pupils’ countdown to Christmas.
It was well attended by children, relatives and friends, said the Rev Preb Simon Franklin.
“It was a lovely service, there was a good number of people there,” he said. “The school choir, led by Sue Stock, sang very well indeed, and there was a nice atmosphere to the evening.”
He was particularly impressed by the instrumental soloists, and said the carol contest was of a particularly high standard this year.

“The winner and runner-up got to sing their entries as part of the service, which is quite a nervewracking thing to do, but they did extremely well, their carols were of execllent quality,” he said.
