Grand concert scheduled

A grand concert is to be held in memory of a stalwart supporter of the Dalesmen Male Voice Choir.

Choir member Gordon Bright has organised the concert as a fund-raiser for Treetops Hospice and as a tribute to his late wife, Sylvia, who was a strong supporter of the choir for many years.

Mr Bright and his fellow singers will perform at St Oswald’s Church, Ashbourne, on Saturday, November 17.

Mrs Bright has been described as a “great friend” to the choir and is remembered for mending the choir members coats, managing the office work and generally helping to keep the choir running.

Mrs Bright died in February after an illness.

Tickets for the concert are on sale for £7.50.
