Thank you one and all for a wonderful concert. We had an audience of over 200 on the afternoon of the 21st April at St Judes, for the afternoon concert. Southsea Infants were fabulous, Southsea CC we great and the first ever gig by the Polite Mechanicals went down a storm. We raised just over £950 on the day, which is phenomenal, it really is, considering the difficult financial times were going through. Beating the Blues is a really very worth while project, bringing people together through singing, improving people’s well-being… and having lots of fun. Thank you again to all who came, the choir’s cakes for the interval, Catherine, Margorie and Jilly for organising the refreshments and all at St Jude’s Church for making us feel so welcome in their lovely church. Maybe see you again next April? CD sales for the choir will take the total to over £1000, so a great success!
Singers are in good spirits at the end of the last rehearsal before the concert!

A good day was had by all at the event in Southsea. The choir enjoyed their busking for 40mins, and so did our audience! We even recruited a few people in the last song, who have now joined the afternoon ladies group.
