Councillors and the Mayor of Havering, cllr Michael Deon Burton attended the first session of the Havering Asian Social Welfare Association's (Haswa) new choir on Monday, November 25.

"It was joyous and great fun and people were all up dancing at the end.

"You don't have to be able to sing and it isn't a choir - the sessions are designed to make a positive difference to people some of which may be lonely or vulnerable."

Manjit Singh from Haswa added: "The launch was brilliant. It was really popular and everybody enjoyed the session."

The next session is on Monday, January 13 next year.
