11th December - Leaside Singers

On Tuesday 11th December our Christmas Meeting brought us entertainment from the Church Gresley based Leaside singers.

Dressed in a very festive red, they started with several contempory songs including Abba's 'Dancing Queen' and 'Lion King' by Elton John.

Then we were entertained by two soloists singing 'Love changes everthing', 'Scarlet ribbons' and a humorous Christmas poem. Next followed more traditional music sung by the whole choir.

When the carol sheets appeared we all knew it was audience participation time and we all sang heartily to the Christmas favourites like 'We three Kings' and 'O little town of Bethlehem', finishing with a rousing rendition of 'Oh come all ye faithful'.

The committee then provided tea and coffee with mince pies, shortbread and stollen for everyone.
