Our choir at Citizenship ceremony

I was delighted to be able to introduce our choir, Sing Your Heart Out from St Francis of Assisi Academy, Gardners Drive, Fairfield, to the new British Citizens in last week’s ceremony. They sang two beautiful songs and made the afternoon really special.

I hope they will come again, I think they enjoyed it as much as the citizens did.

I also read out a wonderful poem Caron’s son had found at home (one of the Registrars) by Benjamin Zephaniah about the recipe that makes up Britain. We are working quite hard on making each ceremony as special as we can. I am also thinking about asking Benjamin if he wants to come and read it out himself one week.
