Those not wanting to miss out on Christmas carol services this year filled a community centre car park for a socially-distanced drive-in performance.
Dozens of cars packed out the Wisbech St Mary community centre car park on Sunday, December 20 for the “Covid-safe drive-in carol service”.
The 45-minute show was performed from the back of a small lorry parked outside the centre on Beechings Close in Wisbech St Mary from 3pm.
The sell-out event was held by Wisbech St Mary and Guyhirn Church and was in aid of The Children’s Society charity’s Christmas appeal.
A spokesperson said: “We had an allocation of up to 60 cars so numbers were based on a first come first serve basis – attendees had to pre-register their number plate.

Attendees were asked to remain in their cars with the engines off, remembering to bring winter clothing, flasks or hot drinks to keep them warm.
