Large numbers turned out yesterday afternoon for the mass singing of Amazing Grace for the Mend our Mum video.
The crowds spread down from the church mound to the frontage of the Lord Combermere, where those singing there had a distinct advantage in getting in first for the free chips and baps being offered to singers by the Lord C's team.
The singing was lusty and seemed to be to the full satisfaction of the production team of Pete Marshall, marshalling the crowds on the mound; Ian Haughey haugheying the Lord C side of the road; producer Ralph Warburton; film cameraman, grip and sound recordist John Gunstone and Alisdair Mackenzie, conductor and choir leader.
Amongst those singing was Berni Cliffe and her family.
Earlier in the morning, thirty five members of ARS had been singing as they walked along the towpath with John Gunstone and Alisdair MacKenzie filming from the boat and Pete Marshall managing to walk backwards while conducting and not falling into the canal.
There is a final burst of singing this morning at the Methodist church by which time the number of people who have participated will be not be far short of the entire Audlem population.
The production team will then enter a period of frenzied editing and production of DVDs which are scheduled to go on sale on 10th December.
