There was a wonderful concert in St Andrews last week featuring the Modbury Gospel Singers and the Village Choir. The music was very varied in its choices but was performed beautifully by those taking part. The Gospel singers did a selection from their favourite songs which included some African Songs as well as some more modern music and were accompanied by Dave and Simon on their guitars. The village choir sang a selection of English folk music and were directed by Mrs Penny Schroeter. They sang six songs in all which were very well received by the audience. The church choir sang Amazing Grace and the evening was rounded off by singing the National Anthem.
This Sunday St Andrews will have an open air service on the Rectory Lawns starting at 4pm,all are welcome to attend. Just a reminder that the Great Tractor Run into Devon and Cornwall starts in a weeks time, I would like to wish the guys well, congratulaions on your efforts and good luck!
