‘Yorkshire nightingale’ to return for fundraising church concert

Patrington Methodist Church is busy raising funds for the repair of the upstairs windows in the chapel, which is now 213 years old, so some areas are wearing out.

So far, they have raised around £600, roughly half of the sum required.

This Saturday afternoon sees the return of Alice Giblin, the celebrated soprano, in concert at the chapel. Alice is also known as the Yorkshire nightingale.

Her first appearance was back in March, when a good-sized audience heard her sing Songs Through the Ages, a programme that contained songs from the shows.

Her beautiful voice was a delight and despite the cold evening everyone had a wonderful time, including refreshments afterwards.

Alice returns this Saturday for a repeat performance, which looks like being very well attended once again. It starts at 2pm.

No tickets are required but hopefully donations will be given for the window fund.

Again, refreshments will be available after the concert, this time freshly baked scones with strawberries and cream, or strawberry jam if preferred.

Everyone is welcome and hopefully the windows will be repaired very soon.

On June 30 they will also be holding a charity auction at the Hildyard Arms in Patrington at 8pm with the great auctioneer duo of Tim Fussey and Ralph Ward.
