It was with great sadness that we said farewell to Tony James who passed peacefully away at home on 12th August 2019, aged 80 years. Formerly of Barlaston in Staffordshire, Tony joined us in November 2003 and soon became a welcome addition to the choir. He enjoyed singing first bass and was always keen to sing new songs. His enthusiasm for singing and his sense of humour affected those around him to great effect. He will be sadly missed by the choir who were proud to be present at his funeral to sing for him one last time.
