To begin Key Green’s Harvest Thanksgiving weekend Biddulph Male Voice Choir delighted a packed audience with their beautiful harmonies. Songs ranged through the African Prayer, The Lord’s Prayer, An American Trilogy, Fields of Athenry and many others.
After a break for tea and cake, the second half began with the conductor, Anthony, inviting everyone who fancied to join in with the singing of Morte Criste (When I survey the wondrous Cross). Many jumped at the chance, and gave a rousing rendition with much applause.
A vote of thanks was given, with Frank Dean mentioning that Key Green is celebrating 100 years of the Sunday School building. The pulpit is still the original and the stained glass in the partition is made from the original chapel windows.
The choir announced that it is 101 years since its formation.
Celebrations continued on Sunday with a thanksgiving service led by Mervyn Lovat, with well known hymns and a hymn with alternative words sung to the tune of Abbots Leigh.
Monday evening finished the weekend with a sale of produce and a donation to the foodbank.
