Bedfordshire Police Choir made one of its final appearances at a concert in aid of Biggleswade’s Marie Curie fundraising group.

Guests, including High Sheriff of Bedfordshire Lady Errol, enjoyed canapes and drinks in Moggerhanger House before the performance took place in Moggerhanger Park’s woodland cafe.

Group spokeswoman Jane Leonard said: “They were very polished and sang a variety of songs, including Christmas carols.”

Bedfordshire Police’s Chief Constable Jon Boutcher will host a carol concert on behalf of the forces’ Christian Police Association, when the choir will be making its final appearance.

The carol concert takes place on Wednesday, December 9 at St Mary Magdalene Church, Westoning.

Now in its second year, the traditional carol concert will be a chance to celebrate the birth of Christ and the Christmas season.

The service will start at 7pm.

It is free to attend and anyone is welcome.

The Bedfordshire Police Choir will also be supporting the event.

The choir has been in existence for 50 years and the performance at the carol concert will be their last before they disband.

There will also be a collection in support of Flint House Police Rehabilitation Centre, which is based in Reading.

This is a rehabilitation and convalescent centre for serving and retired police officers.

The centre helps more than 3,000 injured police officers to get back to full operational health every year.
