A vicar is hoping to set up a community choir in his home village to help bring its residents together.
Reverend Martin Hartley, curate of the Tas Valley benefice near Norwich, held a meeting for villagers at The New Rectory, in Tasburgh, to gaage whether there would be any interest in forming a singing group.
A second meeting is due to be held on February 9 to see whether the idea can be taken further.
'It is in its very early stages,' said the Rev Hartley.
'It's an idea that's come from me to try and bring people together. We're trying to bring people together within the community who don't necessarily meet each other.

'I think singing can be very therapeutic. People do enjoy singing but perhaps don't want to sing by themselves.
'This will give them a bit of confidence and give people the opportunity or reason to and be together.'

Participants do not need to be expert singers, he said, but be willing to have fun and join in some singing.
