A NEW community choir has started in Dyserth, having held its first practice last night (June 3).

Dyserth Community Choir has been started by Alison Ward, who moved to the area from north west England with her family last year.

The first choir practice took place at Dyserth Community Hall last night, and the choir will meet every Monday evening at 6pm at the same location going forward.

“I’ve always loved singing and I noticed that the one thing missing from our brilliant village community was a choir,” Alison said.

“Music brings people together and singing is good for you in so many ways, mentally, physically and socially.

“I set up a Facebook page asking if anyone would be interested in meeting up once a week to sing a few songs and was amazed at the response I got.”

Rather than the handful of replies she was expecting, more than 50 people got in touch to say they’d like to be involved in some way.

In excess of 30 people came along to the first rehearsal last night, meanwhile.

Alison said: “People from Dyserth and the surrounding areas were really interested. There has been so much support and enthusiasm; I can’t thank everyone enough.

“We plan to put on regular concerts for the community and hopefully perform at events around the area as time goes on.”
