A musical delight at St Mary’s Church in Ely saw two choirs come together for the first time to perform an array of songs.

The Ely Youth Choir and Ely Imps joined forces for the special performance to more than 60 guests.

The youngsters sang Chariots are Coming, songs by Benjamin Britten and a new song written by director Andrew Parnell called Keep Us Informed – a song about road safety.

Ely Youth Choir administrator, Sylvia Bulley, said: “We had over 40 members from both choirs perform beautifully together.

“It was the first time they had performed together and it went really well and was great fun.
