CHOIR AND WRECKERS ON TOUR!
15 Sep 2017
7 for 7.30pm
The choir will be performing in the Assembly Rooms at Devizes Town Hall in aid of the RNLI during our visit to the area in September. The Wreckers will also be performing there on the night - and might appear somewhere else too! This is a rare opportunity to see the choir outside our home area so book early.
THE CHOIR AND WRECKERS TOGETHER!
15 Aug 2017
The last of our concerts in the Looe RNLI boathouse this season will be on Wednesday 15th August. The Wreckers will also be performing several numbers so it will be two for the price of one (or none - it's free!). Plenty of seats will be available but it's informal - we don't mind if you don't stay for the full concert. We love raising money for Looe RNLI so please donate generously.

CELEBRATION OF VERY LONG SERVICE
4 Jul 2017
At a special concert in Looe Lifeboat House with BBC Spotlight present, the choir celebrated the very long service of Ken Puckey and John Pooley who both joined in 1972. In most choirs, service of 45 years would be impressive enough but the choir is one of the oldest in Cornwall. Murray Collings joined in 1952 and has now been in the choir for an incredible 65 years. The photo shows (left to right) John Pooley, Murray Collings and Ken Puckey.
