Some 50 people joined the Capricorn Singers for a festive afternoon tea.

The event took place at St Andrews Church, on Rossall Road, Cleveleys, and raised £148 to help the group continue its support of community events in 2018.

Janet Heald, from the Capricorn Singers, said: “The event was a lovely start to the festive season and our audience enjoyed our performance and participated in a couple of carols.

“We have had some great times in 2017. The Capricorn Singers won first place in the ladies choir section at Skipton Music Festival in March and were awarded second place at Fleetwood Music and Arts Festival in the mixed choir section in November.

“We were asked to perform again at The Northern Festival of Remembrance at Marine Hall, with a full house of over 600.

“We have lots planned for the next year – including return visits to Mrs Sunderland Music Festival in Huddersfield in February, Skipton Music Festival in March, St Georges Festival in Lytham in April and The Lytham Festival of Choirs in May.
