DARWEN’S Newrad Singers are seeking a new conductor and are hoping to recruit new members for future performances.

The ladies choir is the oldest in Darwen, having started life in the 1920s as Darwen Girls Choir when they won many awards

It has recently been conducted by Jordan McDermott, choral scholar at Blackburn Cathedral, but he is taking up a new role in London in September.

The choir meets at Holy Trinity United Reformed Church, Sandy Lane, Lower Darwen, on Mondays at 8pm.

Anyone interested in either roles is asked to contact Audrey on 01254 705294 or 07961 972362.
