A CAROL concert is being held by the Lowton, Golborne and Ashton Mencap Society.

The Mencap Community Carol Concert will take place at The Rose Centre, on December 4 from 7.30pm.

Entertainment will be provided by the Golborne Brass Band, the pipes and drums of the Manchester Branch of the Scots Guards Association and members of the Three Towns Operatic Society.

Bob Short, chair of the Lowton, Golborne and Ashton Mencop Society said: “Our Society has enjoyed presenting the Community Carol Concert during the post 30 years at what is now the Rose Centre.

“With such excellent performers the audience should be in for a delightful evening.”

Whilst the concert is by invitation only, some tickets will be available from Wigan and Leigh Pensioners’ Link on Charles Street in Leigh or from the Imperial Court Restaurant on Church Lane in Lowton.
