Barnard Castle choir of 40 years appeals for new leader



by Lizzie Anderson

A CHOIR formed 40 years ago by staff at a young offenders institution may have to disband unless a new leader steps forward.

Deerbolt Ladies Singers have been delighting audiences for decades, staging spring and Christmas concerts every year.

The group was born out of The Deerbolt Singers, made up of staff at the young offenders’ institution of the same name at Startforth, Barnard Castle.

Over the years, male membership dwindled to nothing but the women remained, with Margaret Forrest at the helm.

However, after 26 years of dedicated service, Mrs Forrest is retiring and the choir is desperately seeking a replacement with the “same flair and love of music.”

by Lizzie Anderson

A HEADTEACHER has praised four pupils who were photographed buying food for a homeless man on their way home from school.

Jack McGill, Cameron Turner-Neill, Charlie Hirst and 11-year-old Sam pooled their money to buy chocolate biscuits, water and cereal bars for the man after noticing he looked upset and unwell.

The boys, who attend Woodham Academy in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, spotted the man, aged about 50, sitting on a bench in the town centre and were concerned about him.

A passer-by photographed their act of kindness and posted it on Facebook, prompting widespread praise for the boys.

Cameron, 12, said: “Jack went over to see if he was okay and sat down next to him. The man asked if he had had a nice day at school and they started chatting. He said he was from London and had been homeless for nine years.

“He was very nice and you could tell he was well educated.
