• IT is incredible that in only five months of learning to sing as a choir that the Waterside Singers will be performing at the Weymouth Methodist Church, in Melcombe Avenue, on Wednesday, November 24 at 7.30pm.

They will be performing with an orchestra, which just seems impossible, but that was what the project “Can’t Sing…neither Can We” was all about.

The choir has many other engagements leading up to Christmas. Christmas in the Park (details below) is the concert that we promised to do in the lottery bid, the orchestra is a bonus, which was arranged by our wonderful musical director, Johanna Wolffe, they will be appearing at the Lawns, in Fernhill Avenue and there will be several Carol Singing evenings – more details nearer the time.

Due to their success the Waterside Singers, I can assure everyone, will be continuing long into 2011.

  • THE ever popular Quiz Night is on Saturday, November 27 at 7pm.

The cost is £3.50, which includes light refreshments. You can bring your own drinks and enjoy a wonderful evening.

There is a prize for the winning team of £20.

  • COMING up at the Park Community Centre in Chelmsford street on Saturday, December 11 at 7.30pm, is a “not to be missed” Christmas show, Christmas in the Park.

To entertain everybody, fresh from a recent show at the Pavilion, is Ray Banham, Juno and Mathew Cornick, who will be joined by the Waterside Singers, GwellC Dance Crew (Street dancers) and a group of young dancers from PDY Youth Group.

There will be real festive atmosphere and a great, fun evening of entertainment including a grand draw, a lucky ticket prize, mince pies and hot drinks.

Tickets £3 for adults and £1 for children. They are on sale at the Park Community Centre and the Bon-Bon shop in Queen Street.

It’s a chance for all in the area to have a get-together and at the same time be entertained in the good old-fashioned Christmas way.
