Cedars Retirement Village In Hertfordshire

The Cedars Singers took to the stage at the retirement village in Chorleywood, to perform a concert of song and the spoken word to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

In the evening of Friday 16th December, locals made a space in their social calendars – which are often busy due to dozens of optional regular social groups, events, activities and trips – to raise money for the Poppy Fund.

The Cedars Singers treated the residents to an array of musical delights including songs such as ‘Your King and your country’, ‘When this lousy war is over’, and ‘Sister Susie’.

As well as a tuneful evening, it was also one of literary excellence, with poem readings including ‘Joining the colours’ and reflective pieces such as ‘Armistice Day’.

The evening brought together a spectacular display of talent, as well as the chance to socialise with other residents alongside some drinks and nibbles.

As a successful ticketed event, the residents were pleased to make their contributions towards the Poppy Fund.
