The choir first met in the Spring of 2015 with 13 members. It has grown rapidly and now has over 30 participants. However, new members are always welcome.

 If you enjoy singing then you fulfil the qualification for joining the choir - no audition, no requirement to read music, no solos.

 We meet during school term times on a Thursday evening in the Primary School Hall between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm (coffee/biscuit break from 8.00 pm to 8.15 pm). The charge is £7 per session; the initial session is free. Come along and enjoy the singing and company of other members.

 We usually perform during the Village Christmas Tree Festival and sometime in the Spring/Summer term, but members are not required to take part.

 COME ALONG, SING, AND GO HOME ELATED AND REFRESHED – IT IS GREAT FUN AND AN ENJOYABLE SOCIAL EVENT

The Choir had a busy lead up to Christmas when some or all members took part in festive events at several local places.

On 25th November the choir was at the Village Hall where it performed during the Christmas Pudding Making event and on Wednesday 6th December songs and readings were performed at the Ford End Gardening Club Christmas gathering when everyone present sang carols together. Saturday 9th December saw the choir singing six songs as part of the Essex Police Band’s concert in the Church, while the following Wednesday it was around the village, singing carols at several locations: perhaps you heard them

The Choir again decorated a tree for the Village’s Christmas Tree Festival. On this occasion those attending the Christmas Fayre voted it as the best tree

In June 2024 the Choir held a Festival of Choirs.  Six choirs including one from the Village School took part in a hugely successful evening which finished with all six choirs singing a pre-learnt number together.

The dates for choir sessions up to the Summer break are (all Thursdays and all at the Village School)
