In May, the choir sang for the Co-op Society in Guisborough and in Chester-Le-Street for the Park View Community Association.
In June, a charity concert was given for the Woodlawn Special School in Monkseaton in aid of the Swimming Pool Appeal. The choir also managed to look after their own and sang at Brian Robinson’s wedding at Jesmond Parish Church.
In the Autumn, concerts were given in Carlisle, Harrogate for the Rotary, and Barton-on-Humber. Concerts were given in Felling St. Patrick’s Church with The Richardson Singers of Darlington, Stanley Civic Hall for the Burnopfield Play Park Association.
In November, the choir took part in a concert at Sunderland Empire with the Glasgow CWS Brass Band and Hetton Lyons Male Voice Choir.

Not a bad year in all!
