Singing for Pleasure - which focuses on entertaining to raise money for charities - sang a programme of well-known popular songs, some of which had been specially arranged by their musical director, Glynis Rogers.

Many people stopped to listen to the choir, while others joined in the singing or tapped their feet to the music.

Since forming in 1980, the choir has raised more than £200,000 to support a variety of charities.

To join the group there are no auditions and an ability to read music is not essential - an enjoyment of singing is all that's required.

Singing for Pleasure will be performing their summer concert on Saturday, July 6, at St John the Evangelist Church, in Monks Rise, WGC (AL8 7NX).

The chosen charity chosen for the night, which starts at 7.45pm, is the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society - with Glynis urging residents to "come along and support your local fundraising choir".
