James Brokenshire joined the Mayor of Bexley and other guests at a special Diamond Jubilee Concert at St John the Evangelist Church, Sidcup on Saturday (23 June 2012). The Greenwich Concert Band led by its Musical Director Chris Lloyd entertained a packed audience with an evening of stirring and patriotic music.
The special event was in support of work on the church building to accommodate additional community events with a retiring collection for Help for Heroes. The Greenwich Concert Band were joined by talented vocalist Janette Cattell who gave the evening a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ feel with renditions of Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory to round off the evening. Speaking at the end of the concert Rev Stephen Sealy the Vicar of St John’s said the evening “made you proud to be British”.
