Choir seeks fresh tal­ent

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Happy Ending After Puppies Stolen -

A well-known Kent choir is re­cruit­ing new mem­bers.

The 85-year-old Snow­down Col­liery Male Voice Choir was started in the col­liery towns of Kent but now draws mem­bers from across south and east Kent.

Three mem­bers and the ac­com­pa­nist come from Ash­ford, shar­ing trans­port to the weekly prac­tices in Ayle­sham. Ge­orge Han­lon, who sings bass, lives in Ham­street and has been with the choir for nine years. He said: “I’ve made a lot of friends in the choir, and singing has made a big dif­fer­ence in my life. We sing about 13 con­certs each year to help raise funds for lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties. We’ll be singing at the Royal Al­bert Hall next year, which we’ve done be­fore. It’s a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Mr Han­lon is happy to take new mem­bers to prac­tice evenings. Call him on 01233 732684.
