SID Vale Folk Choir members have voiced their support of the Save Our Sidmouth campaign by handing over £100.

The money, which will be match funded by the Sid Vale Association, will go towards a planning consultant to help protesters fight plans to redevelop Knowle.

The choir’s chairman, Alan Licalsi, said its members were delighted to be able to help to try to preserve the heritage of Sidmouth - which they all hold dear to their hearts.

Sid Vale Folk Choir is open to both men and women from Sidmouth and the Sid Valley.

The choir meets in Sidmouth every Thursday evening from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

New members are welcome and there is no audition to join.
