Our friends at Upper Beeding School kindly invited the residents to a concert by the children, who sang songs popular during the second World War. The children had been studying this period and got into character by dressing up. To make it even more special Dame Vera Lynn was present as the children performed all the war time favourites, including It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, Pack Up Your Troubles, We’ll Meet Again and The White Cliffs of Dover. The audience were then encouraged to sing along at the end as they chose their favourites.
Following the concert some of the children mingled with the audience to talk through their project books and to serve tea & biscuits.
A big thank you to everyone involved, for such an enjoyable afternoon.
