A Craig-y-Don church will be hosting a traditional carol service to support the work of the town's lifeboat crew.

The event is at St Paul's Church in Craig-y-Don is on Sunday December 22 at 3.30pm, and will follow the classic format of nine lessons and carols established in the 1880s and later made famous by BBC broadcasts from Kings College Cambridge.

Admission is free, with a collection to support the work of RNLI Llandudno Lifeboat, which is now based on the promenade at Craig y Don, not far from St Paul's Church.

As well as festive favourite carols, there will also be some seasonal surprises from the choir and chance for everyone to sing along as well.

Rev Noel Carter, Rector of St Paul's said: "the lifeboat service in North Wales seems to be busier than ever, so this is chance for us and the community to show our support for the volunteers who'll be on call right through the Christmas period.

"The Llandudno lifeboat crew are now our close neighbours in their superb new boathouse, and we're delighted to be supporting their work saving lives at sea."

"This is one of the few churches left in North Wales with a traditional four-part choir, which enables us to recreate a classic start to the Christmas season.
