Bury St Edmunds’ Howard and Mildenhall Estates rang to the sound of Christmas carols thanks to a joint effort by their churches.

Members of Northumberland Avenue Methodist Church, St George’s Church, Christian Resource Centre and Bury St Edmunds Presbyterian Church joined forces to bring carols out into the two estates.

They did two ‘concerts’, singing outside the shops in Mildenhall Estate’s Lake Avenue and in Howard Estate’s St Olave’s Precinct.

Organiser John Watson, from the Methodist Church, said: “We had quite a few people stop and join us singing along with us. It was very enjoyable, though it was cold.”

There was no collection and John added: “We did it just to sing carols to the people who passed by the shops.”

This was not the estates’ only home-grown Christmas event. Mildenhall, Estate had its own Christmas Fayre the weekend after Bury St Edmunds’ huge one.

The churches also held their own traditional indoor carol services.
