Youngsters take place in the annual Just Sing Concert at St James' Church Hall, Anston

COMMUNITY spirit was ever present in Anston recently when four schools came together to put on a concert.

Dozens of children from Anston Brook, Anston Park, Anston Hillcrest and Anston Greenlands joined together for the annual Just Sing concert.

The choir performed to an audience of parents and teachers at St James Church Hall.

The joint choir was formed over a year ago by musical director Jenny Cone with the help of the church. So far it has been a great success, with requests coming in for the choir to help at several community events. The Reverend Margaret Caunt said: “Britain’s Got talent and the X Factor have got nothing on the talent we have in Anston.”

“Anston has a strong tradition of choirs and singing groups that do the village proud and the children’s choir is a blessing to our community.”

Money raised at the Just Sing concert by a raffle and refreshments is to be donated to Safe@Last.
