Caravan and Motorhome Club Singers

The Caravan and Motorhome Club are looking for a new Accompanist/Pianist.

The choir was formed 15 years ago and consists of members of the Club who like to cobine their hobby of caravanning and motorhoming with their passion for singing.

The group consists of about 70 people, mainly husband and wife, who meet up 5 or 6 times a year and hold weekend rehersal rallies, with a view to performing concerts for Club events.

Because members come from all parts of the UK, rallies are held mainly in the Midlands area, Leicestershire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.

Our current Accompanist is stepping down at the end of September and we are looking to recruit an experienced accompanist as soon as possible who has a caravan or motorhome.

Do you have a Centre Treasurer that requires assistance?

If so please contact:
Lewis Torr, Central Region Treasurer

Parsley Hay is a tiny cluster of houses which evolved with the laying of the Cromford and High Peak railway line in 1825. At 1150 feet above sea level, Parsley Hay station was amongst the highest in England. The railway line which opened in 1830 ran from Cromford to Whaley Bridge and was used mainly to transport heavy minerals from the Cromford Canal to the Peak Forest Canal. It was thought of as an extension to the water form of transport, so much so, that the stations including Parsley Hay were known as wharves, and the nine inclines along the route were the equivalent of locks. At Cromford the line started at a height of 277 feet and ascended to 1264 feet on the limestone uplands before then descending to 517 feet at Whaley Bridge. The line finally closed in 1967.
