Tarvin singers 2

Under the leadership of Mrs Jo Marshall the Tarvin Singers have been entertaining many groups of people in Tarvin and around the county for over 50 years.
From their performances in many of the Tarvin pantomimes and theatre productions to singing at formal
and private functions, concerts at residential homes and fund raising events for many local organisations, they have been in great demand and always responded favourably when requested to come and do a performance.
Their performances always being of a very high and professional standard, Jo would not settle for less.!

In this way they raised an incredible sum of money for many charities such as Claire House, Hospice of the Good Shepherd, Tarporley Cottage Hospital, Blind Veterans and Guide Dogs for the Blind. Even sponsoring a guide dog puppy ( Tammy ) for a year.
Their contribution to all these charities is admirable for a small group and we congratulate and thank all of them.

In this their 50th year they have decided to bow out gracefully and a celebratory meal was held at the Stamford Bridge Inn to mark the occasion. This was attended by present and past choir members and guests .
Mrs Jo Marshall gave a speech in which she thanked Mrs Dorothy Dodd for her hard work as pianist, Mrs Dorothy Weston for her expertise in keeping the books in order as treasurer and to all the singers past and present who had made it all possible.
In return Mrs Moira Brown thanked Jo on behalf of the choir for all her hard work and the pleasure that singing and belonging to the choir had given to everyone. We have been privileged to have such a talented leader in Mrs Jo Marshall and we thank her.
Many people will be glad to know she is still in demand in her other roles as music teacher and organist in the village.
