Sell out concert
7:00am Sunday 22nd December 2013 in News
WISTASTON Community Council enjoyed a sell-out at their annual Christmas concert on Friday< December 13.
The concert took place at St Mary’s Church Hall, on Church Lane, and featured the Wells Green Choir, with musical director Myra Wood, and musicians from Shavington High School's Concert Band with their curriculum deader of music, Mr Clark.
Carol's sang by the audience were Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Silent Night, I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas and Winter Wonderland.
There was a raffle with nineteen prizes and festive refreshments were available during the interval, with the event supported by The Woodside public house and H. Clewlow Butchers.
The sell-out event was attended by Mayor of Cheshire East Councillor Dorothy Flude and consort Alex Flude.
Dane Chaplow, chairman of Wistaston Community Council, thanked the choir, the band, Councillor Flude and her consort for attending and the audience for their support.
He gave a special mention to former Wistaston Community Council president Geoff Armitage, who helped organise the concert for many years and is an integral part of the Wistaston community.
Geoff is currently ill, so all present wished him a speedy recovery. All the profits from this event will be donated to children’s charities.
The Wistaston Community Council is searching for new members to help organise next year’s Christmas Concert, as well as other Wistaston-based events such as the Spring concert, Summer Fete, Flower and Produce Show and the Fireworks Display. Visit wistastoncommunity.co.uk for details.
