Choir ‘suited to sing’
Denbigh & District Male Voice Choir were pleased to have the Mayor of Denbigh, Councillor Raymond Bartley, and Town Clerk, Medwyn Jones, visit them at their weekly practice in Eirianfa Community Centre last Tuesday.
With the help of a generous grant of £1,000.00 from the Town Council the choir have been able to purchase new uniforms. Once again the choir has been bold in their choice of colour, opting for a purple blazer, black trousers and lilac shirts. In recognition of the grant awarded by the council the choir have also changed their old blazer badge to a new replica of the actual Town Seal. The Mayor and Town Clerk were able to have a preview of the new uniform on the night as Gronwy Wynne, the choir Stage Manager, ‘modelled’ it especially for them.
Paul Harrison, Chairman of the Choir, said, ‘It is good to be able to publicly thank the Mayor, all Town Councillors and the Town Clerk for their loyal support of the choir. Our purchase of the new uniforms has been an expensive outlay and the grant we received enabled us to purchase it much earlier than we would otherwise have been able. Our current uniform has served us well and lasted 12 years but it was becoming hard to obtain blazers for new members as the cloth was no longer available.’
The uniforms were supplied by 1st Class Clothes of Prestatyn and, coincidentally, the choir wore them for the first time at a concert in Prestatyn Parish Church on the 28th November.
Practices are held on Tuesday evenings at Eirianfa Community Centre, Denbigh starting at 7.30pm. and the choir would welcome any new prospective members to come along.
