NEYLAND Ladies’ Choir ended its summer term in style with two concerts in Neyland and serving refreshments at the Neyland carnival.
The ladies had the honour of performing some of their favourite pieces for local bowler Margaret Sanders and her guests at her president’s dinner for the West Wales Ladies Bowls Association at Neyland Athletic Club.
The light-hearted programme and the rapport with musical director Lynne Kelleher and the audience had the crowd singing along and earned the choir a standing ovation.
Margaret Sanders delivered an emotional thank you to the ladies and she said how proud she was to be able to have her own choir at such a special event.
The final engagement was at Zion Chapel when the choir shared the stage with Pembroke and District Male Voice Choir and soloist Catrin Raymond from the north of the county.
Neyland choir opened the concert with a great Welsh hymn 'Lausanne' and performed a few new items to the large audience.
The male voice choir once again delivered a great performance and included some pieces marking the centenary of the First World War.
The beautiful voice of Catrin, who sang in English, Welsh and Italian, enthralled the audience and she received a standing ovation.
Arranged by Dinty Jenkins, the concert raised more than £700 for the Paul Sartori Foundation.
Rehearsals will resume on Wednesday, September 3, when the AGM will take place at 7pm.
