AUDIO: Hitchin Christmas CD to be released

A TOWN’S residents have been showing off their musical talent, by making a CD to raise money for the Christmas lights appeal.

Hitchin Initiative had the idea of creating a Christmas CD, containing tracks sung by groups and individuals in the town.

The final product is almost finished, and will be available from the Initiative offices in Churchyard.

The likes of Offley School, Bancroft Townswomen’s Guild, and St Mary’s Choir lend their voices to the CD, which will also be sold at the town’s light switch-on later this month.

The money raised from sales will go towards the town’s Christmas lights appeal.
