A NEW vocal group has made its debut performance.
The Community Choir has 85 members and made its first public appearance at an East Durham Area Action Partnership (AAP) event.
The choir has been launched thanks to the support of the East Durham AAP, with financial backing from Coun Brian Wilson’s neighbourhood budget.
The singers performed at the partnership’s forum, which brought together people from across East Durham and took place at Blackhall Community Centre yesterday.
Shealagh Pearce, AAP co-ordinator, said: “We are proud to support this choir which is made up of members of the local community and we hope they go on to bigger and better things.”
The choir includes people from Thornley and Wheatley Hill.
The performance formed part of a session to help people find out more about what is happening in East Durham and the work of the AAP.
Organisations also displayed their information.
