Young carollers from Woodbridge Primary School sang classic carols – including Silent Night and Away in a Manger – to entertain Christmas shoppers.

The children gave the special performance at the East of England Co-op branch at Hamblin Road in the riverside town.

Amy Barratt, community engagement manager for the Co-op, also attended the performance donned in reindeer fancy dress while talking to customers about the East of England Co-op’s work in the local community this year.

She said: “As a business in the heart of the community, we were pleased to spread a little Christmas joy in our Woodbridge store along with the pupils from Woodbridge Primary School, who were absolutely fantastic.

“We would like to thank the school for sharing some Christmas cheer with our customers.”
