Village in fine voice for a choir

Have your say

RESIDENTS in the Barnsley village of Thurgoland are making their voices heard - with the launch of a new community choir.

Thurgoland Community Action Group is to hold monthly practice sessions for local singers from the autumn. The group hopes the choir will feature as an act in a Christmas concert later this year.

The choir will practise at Holy Trinity Church at 7.30pm on the third Sunday of the month, with the first session on September 16.

Villagers are also gearing up for the Thurgoland Summer Fun Day this Saturday, July 7.

Among the attractions will be a chance to sign up for a village trip to Scarborough on Saturday, September 22. Around 45 places are available - visit the group’s stand in the Holy Trinity church tent.
