Lynhales Hall Resident Presented with Police Choir Honour

A resident at Lynhales Hall Nursing Home in Lyonshall has been awarded a medal for his long service in the Hereford Police Male Voice Choir.

Jim Griffith, who now lives within the John Sperry Memorial Unit, joined the choir after retiring from a career as a maths teacher. Having sung in choirs throughout his life, Jim joined the choir through association, serving for 21 years as chairman.
The Police Choir performed a Sunday service to all the residents from the grand staircase in the home’s hallway. Jim was accompanied by his wife and daughter to watch the performance before choir-singer, Ray Williams, presented Jim with his medal. After the service, the congregation enjoyed mince pies and hot drinks. 
Mary Ayles, the Lifestyle Coordinator at Lynhales Hall, said:
“It was an honour for us all to witness Jim be presented with his medal. It meant a great deal to Jim, and we feel extremely proud to have played a part in organising.  Our residents thoroughly enjoyed the choir performance, and we hope to welcome them again in the future.”
