About the Choir

The Choir is made up of members of varying ages, they come from all walks of life. Most people come from the local area but some members do travel quite a distance to be part of the choir. At the moment the choir is about 30 strong but we are hoping to soon return to our usual strength of 40 – 50 members. Our group is very sociable and all have a good natter when we break for tea in the middle of rehearsal. Some members sing with other choirs and are very proficient whilst others sing with us just for the enjoyment of doing so. We do not expect everybody to have a superb voice just an enthusiasm of music and singing. NO AUDITION IS REQUIRED.

Over the years we have had many accomplished Musical Directors and their expertise has been very much appreciated over the years. Despite the attractions of electronic forms of entertainment the choir continues to make music in the time-honoured traditional way, there is no substitute for real live performances!

The Choir is now very fortunate to enjoy the benefit of the services of Laura Pointer as our conductor and musical director. Laura graduated in music from Lancaster University and sang with the choir for some time before taking charge. Choir practices are light and easy-going and Laura can coax a tune (and the right notes!) out of almost everyone!
