Local choir Treble Clefs have raised money to support Bexhill Caring Community.

The choir’s musical director Keith Richardson presented a cheque for £250 to Caring Community chairman Cllr Stuart Earl.

The presentation took place at the end-of-season party held by the Treble Clefs as they begin their summer break.

The Treble Clefs have enjoyed another very successful season, in only their second full year of singing as a Community Ladies’ Choir, gaining a “Special Merit” at the Hastings Musical Festival in March.

They went on to appear at the De La Warr Pavilion as part of the supporting community choir in Adam Hepkin’s Magic of the Musicals, which included west end star Ruthie Henshall. They followed that with an appearance in the Last Night of the Bexhill Proms, both events being part of the Bexhill Festival of Music.

Their own Summer Spectacular was held on July 4 at St Augustine’s Church, Cooden Drive.

Acknowledging the fact that July 4 was American Independence Day, the choir included some American songs in the community singing part of their programme.

Stars and Stripes flags decorated tables and a very special American car from the 1930’s was on display as the audience entered the church.

Keith Richardson said: “This has been our best event yet and the congratulations and praise from the audience, not only on the musical content but on the professional way in which the Spectacular was presented, is testimony indeed to the efforts of a great many people associated with our Choir.”

He went on to add: “We are a Community Choir, singing for joy, and it gives us a great deal of joy to be able to put something back into the community at times like this”.

After their summer break the Choir will be back rehearsing hard for their next choral appearances which will be in December at the Royal British Legion in Little Common and at St Martha’s Active Leisure Club. Enquiries about booking the Choir should be made direct to the musical director, Keith Richardson, on 01424 218216.
