ROOTS Community Singers in action
at Newbold Primary School’s World War 2 Summer Fete

Trouble in any of its forms seemed very far removed from Newbold Primary School’s World War 2 Summer Fete, held at the school on Saturday, 28th June, 2014.   Nonetheless, ROOTS Community Singers did its level best to urge the many visitors to forget whatever their current problems were and cast their minds back to the dark days of the 1940s.

Donning period costume, the choir lead some rousing community singing of popular War time songs and also added a few of its own poignant harmonies in the form of Only Remember, Raise Your Voices and the lovely lyrical version of Home Lads with excellent solos provide by Brian Kendrick, Mark Knight and Goff Lewis.
