Church celebrates centenary year

THE Church of St Mary the Virgin in Monkseaton continues the celebrations of its centenary year this weekend with a lively youth choir.

The Swing Bridge Singers are a group of Tyneside teenagers who want to blow the dust off the conventional picture of the youth choir, who sing in six-part harmony, in any style and in yellow.

Monies raised by the concert to be held on Friday, October 14, at 7pm in St Mary’s Church in Claremont Gardens will go towards the redevelopment of St Mary’s.

Tickets are £6 for adults and £2 for children and can be obtained from St Mary’s Parish office, email: or call (0191) 251 4216 or pay at the door.
