There were bright costumes and energetic dance moves at the annual the Co-op Juniors Christmas Spectacular this week.

The young performers chose A Christmas Carol as their theme this year and wowed the audience with their professionalism and talent.

Meanwhile, more than 200 people packed into St Mary le Tower Church, Ipswich for the Archant Suffolk Concert of Carols, raising £550 for the eight days a week appeal in aid of Suffolk Family Carers.

Denise Hales spread some festive joy and also showed her support for the appeal by completely covering her mother-in-laws home, in Creeting St Mary, in fairy lights and fake snow. The family are asking those who come to admire the lights to make a donation to the Suffolk Family Carers.
