You may be aware of the Carols on the Doorstep event which started in Shrewsbury but is now 'going national' - we have been asked to help make sure that as many streets in possible take part in Shropshire on December 16th and to invite you all to join in!
To take part, stand on your doorsteps on Wednesday, December 16th from 6-7pm and tune in to BBC Radio Shropshire (96FM) who will be providing the backing music from last year's Carols in the Square for you to sing along to. You are also asked to choose to donate, if you can, to a charity of your choice - there are four local charities suggested on the website.
Further details of the event can be found at www.doorstepcarols.co.uk
The words to the carols can be found there, along with simple sheet music for children to play along to on a variety of instruments (all the right key!).
Obviously the more the merrier - it would be wonderful to get the whole of Shropshire and the rest of the UK all singing together at the same time!
Why not also Decorate your Doorstep (see 'Decorate' on the website) - there are prizes available for the best decorated houses!
