This was a lovely event which was organised by Erewash Borough Council.

The singing event bought together five of the town's schools to sing songs of their choice. The morning was organised by Helen Mitchem from Erewash Borough Council, and also Victoria Park's Ranger. The Mayor of Erewash Mary Hopkinson was also present to enjoy the singing and open the event. The schools taking part were: Chaucer Junior School, Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy, Granby Juniors, Cotmanhay Juniors and Dallimore. Lots of family and friends turned up to support the children, and dispite being so cold on the park it didn't dampen spirits.

Our songs were: Rudolph, Midnight and Rockin Around The Christmas Tree. The children were brilliant and sounded amazing, their choir teacher Mrs Smith was so proud of them.

After they had sung they each got a hot drink courtesy of Erewash Borough Council, also a gingerbread treat from Mrs Smith.

At the end of the event all the schools came together to sing the Derbyshire Song 'Best That You Can Be'. 

This was a really lovely morning which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone on the park, and all the children that took part did themselves proud. Our Choir's next public performance will be at Trowell Garden Centre in The Digg cafe on 16th December at 10am.
