Emergency services across north Wales will join together next week for their annual Carol Service at St Asaph Cathedral.

On Monday, 9th December at 7:30pm North Wales Police, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service, the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust and other emergency services will be taking part in the annual event.

North Wales Police Chief Constable Carl Foulkes said: “This service is an opportunity for the Emergency Services and any other service, voluntary or otherwise to come together to strike the right festive note.

“The annual event has become quite a feature in the emergency services’ calendar and is enjoyed by many staff members, volunteers, their families and members of the public who wish to show their support.

“It is free and a warm welcome is extended to all to attend, what will be, a wonderful evening.”

Supporting the Emergency Services will be the Royal Buckley Town Band, Côr Alaw and Soloist, Tomos Bohana.

There will be a mix of readings by representatives of the services, who will attend in uniform, as well as known Carols for the whole congregation to sing.

Mr Gerald Williams, Chaplain to North Wales Police said: “I attend this service every year and I look forward to extending a very warm welcome to all service members, staff, family, friends and the community that we serve throughout the year.”

Admission to the service is free and members of the public are warmly invited to attend.

Proceeds collected during the service will be donated to Hafal – Wales’ leading charity for people with serious mental illness and their carers.

Following the service a mince pie and a warm drink will be served in the Cathedral.
