THE Riviera Singers held a coffee morning at the Berry Head Hotel, Brixham, to say farewell to their retiring musical director, Jean Giles, who has served the choir for 12 years.
Jean is now moving on to pastures new and the choir presented her with a cheque and a bouquet as a token of their appreciation for all her hard work.
They now welcome Barry Cole as her replacement.
He has vast experience conducting in Cornwall, Plymouth and Torbay.
The singers rehearse at the Brixham United Reformed Church, New Road, on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm until 9.30pm.
New members are welcome and there is no formal audition.
Telephone 01803 854995 for more information.
Churston Church will play host to the Singers with guest artist Maggie Duffy on September 20 at 7.30pm.
