Severn Harmony is an a capella group which sings in four part harmony. They are the only ladies chorus in the area that specialises in the Barbershop style. They meet most Monday evenings, 7:30 pm at Wellington Methodist church.
None of the stripy waistcoat and boater stereotype though! With a repertoire which draws inspiration from contemporary pop and songs from musical theatre, they are led by an exceptionally qualified and talented Musical Director – Monica Funnell, a four times Barbershop gold medallist! Under her direction, they aim for high musical standards, but have lots of fun along the way!
In 1944 a young woman, who had been previously a shorthand typist at the electricity board in North London, was parachuted into Nazi occupied France. She was a member of SOE and had only received two weeks training and one practice parachute jump.
Her story of immense courage and dignity in the face of the most dangerous of situations is both breathtaking and remarkable as she was recorded moving straight through the middle of enemy lines on her bicycle.
Peggy’s story is little known but now is the time to find her. An ordinary woman who you would pass in the street without a second glance, but she was extraordinary, as you will discover.
