Sing, sing a song

The choir was very busy before Christmas. In addition to contributing to the church services we visited two residential homes, Abbeyfield in East Street and Acacia lodge in Trinity Street. We have been to Abbyfield for a number of years now and as usual we sang items which we had specially prepared, interspersed with carols so that their residents could join in. It was our first visit to Acacia lodge where several of our members now live and we sang a selection of carols, some of which were requested by the residents. It was new outreach for us and one we hope to repeat. We were told that it was the first time they had welcomed carol singers for seven years and the first time ever with adult singers. On a personal note I would like to thank the choir for their hard work while I was substituting for Dennis, who was on holiday especially those who took solo parts ,you made my life very easy.
