Well, what a night! We are currently on the bus battling the snow to get home, but, listening back to some recordings from this evening and reading some of the lovely messages from the audience is making the journey a little better. What a really special evening. 💜💙 #isthisreallyspring #strongertogether
Bags are packed, dresses are ironed this can only mean one thing .... time for a performance!! Tomorrow we're heading up to Houghton Le Spring!!
The church leaders had a meeting and the Pastor asked if Dishforth Military Wives Choir would come and perform for The Apostolic Church and the community & of course we said yes!
The local community are really looking forward to welcoming us along with the local Mayor & his wife as they have lots of ties with the Military....
People are travelling far & wide to see us, we are so pleased to hear IT'S A SELL OUT!!!

So who needs a nice mid week pick me up? Here's something we did last year with The Yorkshire Decibelles for Sing up. We can't wait for some springtime sun!💙🐣💜 #strongertogether #singup #YorkshireDecibelles #waybackwednesdayhttps://youtu.be/ROEq0bCem8o
There is still time for you to purchase our album through pledging we're now up to 87% please see the link below
So we introduced you to Sian last night, next up its our Arlene, the other half of the new PR duo.
I'm Arlene, wife to Kev for fifteen years and mum to Michael who is nine. When Kev got posted into Dishforth in August 2016 one of the first things I done was get myself along to choir. Having been part of a Military Wives Choir before I knew the kind of support it could offer me, especially with moving into a new area....
The first Monday night that I turned up I was totally in awe of the sound that the ladies can make, it was beautiful! The great thing about this network is that we have a core repertoire which means you could join any of the 70+ choirs and be able to sing some familiar songs straight away. It's great to just turn up, meet new people and most importantly sing! I feel pretty lucky that I can call myself a Dishey!💙
Fun fact: I'm also part of an Electro-Grunge band. I love making noise!
Did anyone see the coverage of this on the news yesterday? What a wonderful and thought provoking idea. A few of our ladies have already purchased their Tommy.💙
WELL HELLO THERE!
We are Sian and Arlene. We are the new PR duo for the Dishforth Military Wives Choir taking over from the lovely Rachel. We think you'd agree that she done a fantastic job of promoting our choir and we hope to maintain those standards. So, thank you Rachel for all your hard work and we'll see your smiley face on Monday!❤️
So, who are we? First up,...
I'm Sian & my husband is Sean (as you can imagine it's not always easy to say!!)
We live at Catterick which is our first posting & very lucky to be so close to our family & friends.
I've been with Dishforth Military Choir for over a year now. I came across choir as I was planning my wedding to Sean - I went along to listen, loved them & they sang at our wedding which was truly magical!
I go to choir on Monday to drink tea, eat cake,sing my heart out & often cry. These ladies have been my support while Sean is away as they know how you are feeling & we've all been in the same boat just at different times!
I feel so proud to sing with these ladies. I have made some great friends from sitting on the back row being naughty!
My little fact - We have two fur babies❤🐈 called Betty (I work at Bettys) & Gunner (that was Sean's first rank)
Well the time has come for me to hang up my PR reins after a wonderful 12 months on the committee! It’s been such an exciting year that has seen many radio interviews, an odd TV appearance and strengthening our support for the choir! 🙏 We now have one of the highest number of followers in the network and I’m so proud and grateful for your continued support! 💙 I’m leaving you in the very capable hands of a joint PR team Arlene and Sian who I know will be absolutely fantastic! Dishy love to you all! Rach and Seth 💙😚🍰☕️🎧🎤🎼🎹 Military Wives Choirs Stray FM BFBS Catterick

Next year marks the cen...tenary of the end of World War 1. Fierce heroism from troops at the Front was matched by the country’s women who raised children alone, nursed, and worked tirelessly despite the loss of loved ones.
The Military Wives Choirs can tell the story of these women like no one else can, as it is ours, and we want to mark the occasion through music.
Please support us on Pledge Music by pre-ordering our 2018 album now and share our video to reach as many people as possible! Help us to remember them - we can’t do it without you.
Tonight we held our AGM and said farewell to the 2017 committee and welcomed the new team of 2018💙! We look forward to what this year holds for the Dishies and wish you all luck in your new roles! 🍀
#SingShareSupport workshop and album recording!! What a wonderful weekend with our incredible Military Wives Choirs family! We laughed, cried and sang our hearts out, the memories will keep us going for a very long time! #StrongerTogether 💜🎧💿🎤🎼💋💃
