The choir is one of 72 within the Military Wives Choir network and it serves their members through the ethos of ‘sing, share, support’.

A choir spokesperson said: “We meet once a week to share our love of singing and the benefits that singing brings to us all.

“We also meet as a community of women who understand the complexities, worries and challenges of supporting families within the life of the military network.

“We love to perform to audiences across a wide variety of venues. Our performances have included singing at Lincoln Cathedral, The Palace Theatre, Newark, and in October 2022 we

were proud to sing as part of the Last Post ceremony at The Menin Gate, Ypres, Belgium.

“In the autumn, the choir is heading to Normandy in the year of the 80th anniversary of the D

Day landings.”

The choir supports over 40 women from across the military community, including wives, mothers and daughters of currently serving personnel as well as wives of veterans, from the RAF, Royal Navy and Army.
