Towards the end of term we welcomed members of the local Radlett community for a heart-warming, festive carol concert in conjunction with Aldenham Parish Council.

Visitors from local Radlett retirement and care homes in the community attended the concert as well as individuals from a local community friendship club (The Welcome Club) and a number of local councillors from Aldenham Parish council.

Guests were treated to an afternoon of enthusiastic carol singing delivered by the schools’ choir and also some delicious refreshments. Our pupils sang beautifully alongside some members of staff, performing a range of traditional and popular Christmas carols.

Ben Evans, Headmaster at Edge Grove school commented on the concert: “It’s fantastic to welcome new visitors into our school and to do something festive and feel-good for our local community at this time of year.  It’s also nice to see true community spirit in action.  The children sang so beautifully and even encouraged our guests to join in on some of the more well-known songs!  Everyone was thoroughly entertained and getting in to the Christmas spirit.”

Around 35 people attended the concert, including visitors from Phillimore Place and Moti Willow in Radlett amongst others.

Councillor Estelle Samuelson commented on the concert: “Aldenham Parish Council would like to thank Ben Evans and the members of staff and pupils at Edge Grove school, for taking the time and trouble to organise such a splendid carol concert for the residents of our community.  All of the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves listening to the superb choir and the festive refreshments that were provided went down a treat too.  It was also especially rewarding to witness the Edge Grove pupils interacting so well with the older generation. Additional thanks should also go to Claire Larkin in the council office, for working so hard on all of the arrangements for the event”.

We are proud to be actively involved in the local community and regularly host community-linked events for local visitors.
