THE WOODS around Bordon were alive with the sound of carolling last Wednesday as dozens took part in a festive sing-song.

The Deadwater Valley Trust let in light and banished shade for the annual Carols at the Kings event in Bordon Inclosure.

Participants of all ages donned their coats, stout boots and grabbed their torches with the woodland being lit up with twinkling lights for the event.

They were greeted with the festive aroma of mulled wine while participants were in fine voice for renditions of carols old and new.

Visitors also got the chance to make a woodland reindeer and nibble on some mince pies around the fire during a memorable evening.
