TWO festive nativity events are taking place in Chard next month.

On December 4, residents will be able to take part in Carols at Chard Beacon.

Chard Churches Together are inviting people to meet outside Manor Court School to walk with a 'host of angels' to Chard Beacon.

Children who attend the event are welcome to arrive dressed as angels, and walkers are asked to bring a torch.

Residents will also be able to see the lighting of the nativity silhouettes made by Chard Men's Shed.

The event is supported by Chard Town Council and Chard Carnival Club. Hot chocolate will be served by Chard Carnival Club at the Beacon.

There will also be a Nativity Tableau with carol singers in costume outside the Chard Guildhall on December 11 and 18. During these events, there will be a prayer tree, where residents are invited to write a prayer and hang it on the tree.
