Caldicot Male Voice Choir has a proud history of raising funds through its activities and concerts for National and local charities and good causes. 2018 was no exception when it succeeded in raising about £4000 to enable the Severn View Nursing Home in Chepstow to create a sensory garden for its residents, many of whom suffer from dementia and related illnesses.
In recognition of this, through chorister Alyn Dawe, the home invited a delegation of choristers from the Choir to a first anniversary party of the opening of the garden on 11th August which is now beautifully resplendent in a multitude of colourful flowers and shrubs.
The small number of choristers present entertained the thrilled residents with a short programme of songs including Let it be Me, Annie’s Song, Stout Hearted Men and My Grandfather’s Clock.
It was a great pleasure for the choristers and the residents to be reunited with the fabulous sister singing duo, the Pasha Pops who, in period costume with genuine props for the era, entertained us all with their fabulous return to singing the songs of wartime Britain in the forties.
It was a wonderful afternoon enjoyed by all and many thanks to the Nursing home for the refreshments and hospitality
