Our annual Christmas Concert was held at St Nicholas’ Church in our home town on Friday 21 December 2018, and this year it also marked the 75th anniversary of our choir. We were delighted to be joined by our very good friends the Codsall Singers, under their musical director Jan Spencer, and also by a very large audience. The Mayor of Newport, Peter Scott, and the Vicar of Newport, Rev. Merry Evans, were also in attendance.
Both choirs sang through their programme with great enthusiasm, and were joined by the audience in the singing of carols. As is our tradition, in the interval the choir members served wine, mince pies and Christmas cake to the audience, which added to the enjoyment of the occasion.
All in all, a first class evening, and a fitting end to our 75th year. Everybody went home in very good cheer.
