Members of the March Can’t Sing Choir finally CAN sing together again, however they must stick to strict social distancing rules.
Thirty-five singers gathered in teams of five at hour intervals while keeping two metres apart so they could perform together again for the first time in weeks.
The group, which meets at Trinity Church Hall in March, were split up due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and missed out on valuable practice.
David Pye, group secretary, said: “With permission from Fenland District Council, we held six outdoor singing sessions last week in the rose garden.
“Singers gathered to beat the blues, and meet old friends who in many cases hadn’t been out-of-house for weeks.

“The sun shone brightly, and passers-by stopped to listen to our efforts floating into the open air amid music, laughter and happiness at being outside in a safe and friendly gathering.
“All our singers said the event was a great success, filling a space where MCSC is unable to meet in its usual venue in the Trinity Church Hall, closed of course under COVID-19 regulations.
