Gill Steer and Ros Higson are celebrating 54 years between them with Ripon Choral Society – both singing with the choir and working tirelessly behind the scenes.

Ros has now retired as secretary and Gill has stepped down as treasurer but not before former Mayor of Ripon and choir stalwart David Elsy presented the pair with gifts from grateful members.

“I’ve enjoyed every minute,” said Ros, “and I will still be singing as long as I can.”

– Ripon Choral Society will perform JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio at Ripon Cathedral on December 14.
