Once again we are singing carols at Oxford Circus tube station, on Friday 8 December from 3.00 to 8.00 p.m.  We need singers and also people to rattle collecting tins and hand out information, so there is something for everyone.  Anyone with a portable instrument is particularly welcome! We provide carol sheets and Christmas hats.

We try to aim for three slots. 3-4.30, 4.30-6 and 6-8, but we are delighted to have you for any time you can make, even just for an hour or so.

If you can help us, or if you would like any more information, please contact raffertyrobina@gmail .com (long-standing organiser Maggie is currently on sabbatical).
