Choirs combine to help Pagham on special night

The packed village hall audience were entertained by 60 singers from three community choirs.

Joint organiser Sue Miller said: “The choirs gave freely of their time and performed a range of well-known numbers from their wide repertoire – including rock, pop and folk, plus some Christmas favourites.

“The finale was a powerful and moving rendition of Bridge Over Troubled Water 
which brought a tear to many an eye in the audience.”

The evening last Friday raised £1,600 profit for the Save Pagham Beach campaign.

The singers came from the community choirs of Arundel, Bognor/South Bersted and Southbourne.

They were led by director Steve Flashman and conducted by Emma Barnes.

All those involved with the event were delighted by its success, said Mrs Miller. A series of Pagham businesses backed the raffle.

The concert was held before a taster session at 10am tomorrow in the village hall for the new Pagham community choir.

Also on show on the night were the plans to end the erosion of Pagham Beach.
