Fron Choir
The silhouettes hide an important feature of these members of the country's latest boy band - the fact that quite a few of them are pensioners!

For this is the cover photo of a CD by Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir, their first single since signing a record deal. The choir has been going for 60 years but today they are enjoying the first taste of stardom following the publicity launch for their CD, Voices of the Valley. There's even talk of a movie!

Good luck to the choir which was formed in 1947 by members of the village youth club in Froncysyllte who decided to compete in the first Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.
