Final performance of the year at Beer & Carols

Somewhere beyond the throng of merry Ashton Keynes carolers, in the background of picture, you might just about be able to make our a few black T-Shirts worn by the wassailers of The Magnificent AK47.

A goodly number turned out to combine with the many dozens of villagers in a packed White Hart all joining in the seasonal spirit with some hearty renditions of classic carols by the whole pub and also by elements of the AK Village Choir.

The blokes also performed a few pieces on their own to entertain the crowd with some stirring renditions of "Shosholoza" in honour of the memory of Nelson Mandela, as well as "Malpas Wassail" and a couple of impromptu Flying Solo pieces, most notably a rather fine rendition of "Myfanywy" and that other great Welsh number, "Delilah".

A great way to end the year in the very heart of our village in our spiritual home - thanks to all who came along and helped embed this evening as part of a solid Ashton Keynes tradition.
