In August 2009 five members of the Polperro Fishermen’s Choir met to form an “afterglow" singing group with the idea of enjoying a ‘sing along’ after the choir’s Wednesday evening practice sessions or after the choir had performed one of its many concerts. Fifteen members of the choir attended the first “afterglow” practice session and the group quickly adopted the name "Polperro Wreckers" with the first ‘Gig’ being held just prior to Christmas 2009.
The practice sessions have themselves become performances enjoyed by both visitors and locals alike singing along to a mixture of Cornish, Shanty, Folk, and Sixties numbers. The Wreckers are all about letting their hair down and having fun. They have now performed at various venues in Cornwall and Devon with charities such as the RNLI, Shelter Box, British Heart Foundation, Children's Hospice SW, Cornwall Air Ambulance and local charities including the Fishermen’s choir benefiting as a result.
At about 9.30pm on most Wednesday evenings throughout the year, the Wreckers can be found enjoying themselves in the lovely Old Mill House Inn in Polperro.
