Local Artists Hope For Christmas Hit

A Weymouth songwriter says her self-penned Christmas anthem has struck a chord with the local community.

Ysanne Carniss-Usherwood has enlisted the help of local singers and dancers to produce the song called "Christmas In The Sun".

They'll be on board the Tall Ship Pelican at 4pm this afternoon (Friday 14th November) for a special performance for Children In Need.

Ysanne says they didn't have to look far for a location to shoot the video:

"The whole idea is that it looks like its shot in the Carribbean, but as it turns out its all been shot in Weymouth.  And all the town's folk, businesses, dance schools, all the community have got together to participate."
