On the 1st we could be found at Dobbies Garden Centre (Birtey) in uniform and tinsel singing carols to support their "Ladies' Evening" raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
On the 10th we managed to give our delayed concert from last year at Witton Gilbert Anglican church. This gave us extra impetus for our main Christmas concert in Chester-le-Street Methodist Church on the 17th: the clash with the "Strictly" final is easily avoided by using catch up services ;). Feedback from many in the audience was this was our best concert in a long time. So John Rutter's music must be appreciated - he had a staring role in our programme!
