Liverpool Festival Choir

Liverpool Festival Choir

On Saturday 25th June 2011, the Liverpool Festival Choir, under director Colin Porter and organist Alan Thornecroft, performed at Farnworth Methodist Church, Widnes. They sang a range of traditional church music of praise, rejoicing and celebrating the Trinity. There were organ solos by Paul Hutchins and Colin Porter, and congregational participation in singing "How shall I sing that majesty" and "Jerusalem".

The choir gave their time freely and a collection was taken for our church charity, which this year, under the auspices of Methodist Relief and Development Fund, is for a water supply in a Ugandan village. The amount raised was £294. Afterwards we retired to the church hall for light refreshment.

Walking Group in Crosby

Today we enjoyed an excellent 8 mile walk around Crosby taking in the Beach (including Anthony Gormley number 64), Little Crosby (mentioned in the Doomsday Book) and a stretch of the Liverpool-Leeds canal (now cleaned up and full of birds and fish - instead of shopping trolleys, tyres and other sundry rubbish)
