Wistaston Community Council’s annual ‘Christmas Concert’ took place on the evening of Friday 13th December 2013 at St Mary’s Church Hall, Church Lane, Wistaston.
The concert featured the Wells Green Choir with their Musical Director Myra Wood and musicians from Shavington High School’s Concert Band with their Curriculum Leader of Music Mr Clark.
Carol’s sung by the audience were Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Silent Night, I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas and Winter Wonderland.
There was also a raffle with nineteen prizes. Festive refreshments were available during the interval.
The event was a sell-out and was also attended by Mayor of Cheshire East Councillor Dorothy Flude and her consort Alex Flude.
The event was also supported by The Woodside public house and H. Clewlow Butchers.
Dane Chaplow, Chairman, Wistaston Community Council thanked the choir, the band, Councillor Flude and her consort for attending and the audience for their support.
He gave a special mention to former Wistaston Community Council President Geoff Armitage, who helped organise the concert for many years and is an integral part of the Wistaston community. Geoff is currently ill, so all present wished him a speedy recovery.
All the profits from this event will be donated to children’s charities.
The Wistaston Community Council desperately requires new members to help organise next year’s Christmas Concert, as well as other Wistaston-based events such as the Spring concert, Summer Fete, Flower and Produce Show and the Fireworks Display.
