PUBLISHED: 08:00 22 April 2018
An 'excellent evening of music' was enjoyed in Failand as Avon and Somerset Constabulary choir performed classical, country and religious songs.
The choir was formed in 1971, and more than 30 members sang at St Bartholomew’s church, in Sandy Lane.
Choir member Tom Sage said: “I must thank our musical director Marysia Gorska and soloist Julie Payne, who played the oboe beautifully.
“We had an audience of more than 80 people who enjoyed an excellent evening of music.
“Our membership consists almost entirely of serving and retired police officers and support staff, and we want to maintain the tradition of choral singing in a social environment.”
The choir are looking for new members who have served in the police force.
They rehearse in the lecture theatre at Portishead Police Headquarters, in Valley Road, on Monday evenings at 7:30pm.
