JULY 4 saw the last performance by the Reid Warblers, a singing group which has entertained many in Cleobury Mortimer over the last nine years. The group was originally formed to provide a focus for a handful of people who wanted to sing for their own pleasure, on a fairly informal basis. Judy Reid was targeted as a piano player, but soon showed that she could do much more than accompaniments, and has been the musical director ever since. Predictably, once the existence of the group became known, invitations to give public performances followed.
