LANTERNS and songs will light up the night sky in Gosport this December as a community carol service from years gone by makes its return.

Rowner Community Trust has organised a Christmas carol event, which will take place on Sunday, December 16 at the Square in Darwin Way.

The event is one that used to be held annually in Rowner, and is now being brought back in the hope of uniting the new community after a major redevelopment of the area.

Dr Iain Lucas, chief officer of the Rowner Community Trust, said: ‘Christmas in the Square was a legacy event from the residents who have lived in the area for some time

‘There will be performances from the Grange Community Choir, and other local choirs and a band.’

The event, which will also feature a lantern crafting workshop for children earlier in the day, will start at 5.30pm.

To book tickets, people can go to rownercommunitytrust.org/event/christmas-in-the-square.
