At a supper to mark the occasion, the choir presented its musical director, Alex Davies, with a painting by David Highet, of St Michael’s Parish Church, Lyme Regis, where Alex is organist and choir master.

Chairman Nigel Whittaker thanked him for his commitment and dedication.

He said: “This choir brings so much pleasure into the lives of so many. You should be very proud of your achievements.”

Alex thanked the choir for the picture and praised the singers for their hard work, the support they give him and also for gaining the recognition of one of Britain’s most internationally famous conductors, Sir Neville Marriner, who became their patron in 2015.
