A carol service with a difference happened in Ebbsfleet Garden City recently.

The moving carol service took place around Castle Hill and Ebbsfleet Green.

Revd Penny Marsh of the Ebbsfleet Baptist Church came up with the idea along with Bart Woodhouse,

Videos that they asked people to send in talking about their hopes for 2021 along with the sounds of carols came out of a van fitted with big screens.

The videos were edited by a specialist who has worked with Ebbsfleet Development Corporation before.

The first  Castle Hill Christmas market also took place with  15 local small businesses setting up stall outside the Community Centre for an afternoon and Ebbsfleet Development Corporation helped with the costs of making the market happen.
