Thanks for 65 years of service Bill

Congratulations go to Bill Blower for achieving 65 years of membership & service with the choir.┬áBill joined the choir on 30th January 1951. To mark his 50th year in 2001 we granted him life membership. Though we hope he’s not ready to retire just yet!

As a boy, Bill started singing with St. Barnabas Church choir in Wolverhampton. The highlight of his singing ambitions came when he joined WOMVC. It wasn’t long before his ability as a First Tenor was recognised & he became a regular soloist. Throughout his membership he served on various committees.

For 40 years he worked in the despatch department of Butler’s Brewery in Wolverhampton, only interrupted by National Service in the RAF.
