The choir recently undertook a successful tour to Sanguinet, France. The tour party was overwhelmed by the welcome extended by Sanguinet’s choir ‘La Voix de Losa’ and the twinning committee.
After attending a morning service at St. Sauveur Church the group were invited to meet the Mayor of Sanguinet for an official reception and refreshments, where gifts were exchanged. Noreen Hadfield, choir Chairlady presented the Mayor with a book on the history of Neyland on behalf the author Simon Hancock, Mayor of Neyland and choir president. Later that day the choir received rapturous applause at a concert in the church where the stage was shared with La Voix de Losa and the evening ended with a reception hosted by the French choir.
The hospitality the group received was overwhelming and so much effort had been put in to the planning of the week by both the choir’s tour committee and the contacts in France.
