For the age of 7 to 18 I sang in the Scunthorpe Co-operative Junior choir. It sounds a cliche but those times were some of the happiest of my life.

On Saturday we had a reunion, which was brilliant fun. The choir has been going for over 80 years so we had people of all ages turning up to sing. The oldest lady there sang in the choir in 1935. There was a good show from my era too, and despite not having seen some of the girls for over 10 years it was like we'd never been away. We were gafawing with laughter non-stop from the outset.

We practiced all day and did a concert with the current choir in the evening. It must be testament to our good training because the standard was extremely high. It was also amazing to see how many people have gone on to have a career in music and others like myself who have continued to sing regularly in choirs into adulthood.

It was particularly nice to see Louise, Claire, Rachel, Julie, Nathan, Sophie and Julia. We had a lovely trip down memory lane.

Aaaah the good ol' days...

Hi there! *waves* Just found your blog through doing a random search for the co-op choir, I've been missing it quite a lot just recently. I was in it years 1991 - 2002 (I was the really short one who was too shy to talk to anyone for 10 of those 11 years...)
