Gareth Malone OBE is known for a string of well-known successes such as The Choir, The Big Performance and the Military Wives. Perhaps less well-known, but
as much a credit to his ability and success, are the string of Community choirs which have sprung up around the country as ordinary folk find their voices and
discover the joy of singing. One such group is the Alive & Singing choir which has a base in Bedford - and Renhold resident, Mark Glading, is an enthusiastic participant. See the full article here.
