Nicola received a commendation award last year for her dedication and hard work for The Three Towns, moreso during the time of the Covid pandemic, when she led weekly virtual rehearsals and hosted virtual coffee mornings.

Society chair Ann Batchelor said: “Thank you so much Nicola for all you do for the society, we really appreciate your talent, skill and dedication you really are a star and we wish you both a very happy future together.”Nicola said: “It’s a privilege being able to play the piano for the society. Music isn’t just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle and The Three Towns are a big family. You may turn up to rehearsal with a frown, but you go home with a smile.”

The Three Towns are now in rehearsal for their autumn concerts on November 18 and 19 at St. Joseph’s Hall, Leigh. Tickets are 01942 605369 and online at www.thethreetowns.net
