New Mill choristers win trophies

Christ Church has a long tradition of choral singing, and has had a junior section in its choir for many years. Currently we have half a dozen children in our choir (room for more – contact Geoffrey Lockwood if you’re interested) and three of them decided to enter various classes in the Holmfirth Musical Festival, a local competitive Musical Festival. All three came back with trophies! Congratulations to Emma Nelson, who came first in the under 12 Girls’ solo class (and second in the Junior Songs from the Shows class), to Iris Davies Johnson, who came first in the under 15 Girls’ solo class, and to Nicole Jessop, who gained first prize in both the under 11 and under 13 piano solo classes.
