Right Mrs Hayes is getting her singing voice ready for the Christmas Fayre!!!

I am on the hunt for a group of children who would like to form the St Martin’s Choir for a one day only perfomance.

This would involve:

  • Spending 1 lunchtime a week in November practising a selection of Christmas carols with me!
  • Coming along to the Christmas fayre on Saturday the 30th of November.
