MEMBERS of the Dickens Fellowship will be commemorating the baptism of Charles Dickens at a service.

The Portsmouth-born author was baptised on March 4, 1812.

A service will take place at St Alban’s Church in Copnor Road, Portsmouth at 10.30am on Sunday.

People do not need to be a member of the Dickens Fellowship to come to the service.
