Staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) have announced the date for their annual Christmas carol service.

The Harlow-based hospital is inviting residents to attend the free service where the PAHT choir and pupils from Henry Moore Primary and Downs Primary School will perform.

Mince pies and refreshments will be provided following the festive event at St Paul’s Church, in College Square, Harlow.

Reverend Christian Okeke, lead chaplain at The Princess Alexandra Hospital said: “Singing carols together is a fantastic way to begin the Christmas festivities.

“It is a special time to give our thanks and celebrate our local hospital and community.

“We hope that our community are able to come along to the service and join in with the festive spirit.”

Princess Alexandra Christmas carol service will take place on Tuesday, December 17, from 5.30pm-6.30pm.

Parking is available at Harvey Centre multi-storey car park, which is a two-minute walk to the church.
