The Wyton & Brampton military wives choir have performed virtually, as an act of remembrance.

The choir would have been at the act of Remembrance in Huntingdon Town Centre.

But this year due to the second coronavirus lockdown the choir held a virtual performance instead.

The choir, directed by Elaine Gunn, sang a number of songs, including a song written for the Global Military Wives Choir called ‘The Poppy Red’ which is a song about how the poppy grows on Flanders Fields.

It took the choir a whopping 36 weeks of rehearsing via Zoom, Director Elaine Gunn said: “It is amazing that after 36 weeks of rehearsing via Zoom - the emotion of this time together was tangible, we as a choir will never forget!
