RESIDENTS sang their hearts out at a summer songs of praise morning.
Around 50 people attended the event at Harry Lawson Court in Hurdsfield.

People chose 12 of their favourite praise songs. It was led by Rev Phil Williams and his wife Julie. Phil accompanied the singing on guitar.
Joy Cotterill, from the Time Out group, said: “Each song was introduced by Phil, who talked about the writer and composer and what had inspired them to create the song.
“It was a very uplifting experience and everyone sang their hearts out.
“Afterwards we sat down to strawberries and cream and a cup of tea.
“It was a lovely morning and enjoyed by all.”
The Time Out group was formed by Joy with friend Ann Ventris and others from Holy Trinity Church and meets each month at Harry Lawson Court, a sheltered housing scheme on Crewe Avenue.
