The choir of Sleaford’s William Alvey Primary School helped members and officers of North Kesteven District Council enter into the Christmas spirit by leading them in a carol singing event.
The children’s performance ahead of the pre-Christmas meeting of the Full Council is always one of the most charming parts of the civic year.
Chairman Coun Terry Boston said their singing was delightful, especially their own songs which were performed with confidence, great skill and clarity, especially an action-packed, comedic and complex chorus called Sing a Sing of Christmas Cheer.
“We were so very grateful that children from William Alve School choir were able to take time out from their busy time at school to sing with the members and staff in our traditional short carol service at the council offices. I thought they were absolutely brilliant when I saw them at the St Denys’ Christingle service, but they did even better for us here; they were marvellous.”
“As our most local school, just across the way from the council offices and soon to share with us the free heat output from the new eco power station, I was very proud to be able to introduce their undoubted talents to an appreciative audience. We are always pleased to welcome the children in to the council and the choir is a credit to the school and their teachers. We were all enchanted and inspired by them,” said Coun Boston, who presented each pupil with a package of chocolates to thank them.
