95 YEARS YOUNG!
1 Jul 2018
One of the oldest choirs in Cornwall, Polperro Fishermen's Choir is celebrating its 95th anniversary. In days gone by, the hardy Polperro Fishermen relied only on their seamanship and their trust in God to keep them safe. They sang while they worked, often the hymns they sang in chapel. In 1923 Eva Cloke, wife of a fisherman and chapel organist, and Tommy Marks, a fisherman lay-preacher, formed the first Polperro Fishermen's Choir to preserve the tradition of the singing fishermen. More memories soon!
