George Wade has been presented with a long service certificate by Ashington and District Male Voice Choir for 47 years, and he was also elected president at the choir’s recent AGM.

This year sees the choir celebrate its centenary, with George being a member for almost half that time.

The centenary celebrations are under way, with the Centenary Celebration Concert on Saturday, May 14, at 7pm, at the Josephine Butler Complex in Northumberland’s Church of England Academy in Ashington.

The choir will be supported by guest artists Susan Robertson and Anna Corcoran. Tickets are £6.
