In the past month there has been a tremendous amount of work done to the extension of Caldicot Choir Hall such that the building is now waterproof and is waiting for delivery of the tiles.
None of this would have been possible without the almost non-stop work of chorister Leon Jones who has not only from start to finish, managed the project, secured materials and funds from sponsors and carried out much of the work himself including labouring for the bricklayer Mark Shepherd, carpenter Andrew Little and roofers Shane and Lee Jeremiah.
Leon’s latest endeavour has been to secure a generous donation by Tim Williams of Cymru Plant Services Ltd of Caldicot of £2000 to help with the building fund. This together with other donations of labour, equipment materials, services and skills, not least that of chorister Mike Williams who designed the building extension and helped to secure planning permission, have enabled this essential project to near completion.
The photographs include the presentation of the cheque by Tim Williams to representatives of the Choir; chairman John Nicholson; architect Mike Williams; secretary Kenneth Cooper and Vice-chairman Leon Jones. Tim was pleased to receive a letter of thanks, a choir CD and a commemorative Choir tie as symbols of the Choir’s appreciation.
