Community choir spread festive joy

Community choir spread festive joy

A COMMUNITY choir toured Henley and performed in the run-up to Christmas.

Emma Taylor, of Western Avenue, set up the group of amateur singers to get to know her neighbours and cheer up the elderly people in the town, who are unable to venture out due to the current coronavirus threat. 

They performed outside the Acacia Lodge care home in Quebec Road, the Western Close and Vicarage Road and St Mary’s almshouses, Hanover House in Greys Road and in The Close.

Mrs Taylor said: “It was really lovely to see people up at the windows. I coid see some of them dancing. One resident said it was like the old days when carol singers would come along the streets.

Also in attendance were Sheridan Jacklin-Edward, Emma Hoddinott, Christine Glucksmann, Mark Stallabrass, Clare Wills and Nikki Norris
