A women’s choir with members from Spalding, Bourne and the Deepings has a new song to song after being nominated for a top business award.

A Handful of Harmonies and its music director, Andrew Clingo, were nominated in the Outstanding Contribution to the Community category at the 2014 Stamford and Rutland Business Awards.

Although the choir was unsuccessful in winning the category, it received more than 200 nominations for the award which was decided by judges, including the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire and Holbeach Hurn businessman, Tony Worth, and Burghley House director, Miranda Rock.

Andrew said: “We were very pleased to receive a finalists certificate for the Business Awards, but sadly we weren’t a winner.

“There’s always next time though and we had a very sociable and enjoyable evening.

“I’d like to congratulate the winners, although we’re all winners in someone’s eyes and I’d like to thank all our nominators and supporters for the status of being a finalist at the awards.”
