The concert, called ‘What A Difference a Day Makes, was to have featured feel-good songs from the 1920’s and 1930’s.

John Mercer, from the church, said: “Due to the ongoing situation in respect of the coronavirus outbreak it has been decided to cancel the concert scheduled for Saturday March 21. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but trust you will understand our decision. Hopefully we will be able to reschedule this concert for later in the year.”
