The Ulster Aviation Society recently had a dedication event to unveil their replica Spitfire in Down markings, and they were delighted that Banbridge High students Josh Toland and Melissa McCready-Shaw took part in the event by singing songs from the era. The talented singers prepared such numbers as ‘We’ll Meet Again’ and White Cliffs of Dover’ to sing at the event on Saturday 25th April.
The work and effort of students was rewarded with comments from those present, and later by email. Mr Ernie Cromie, former chair of the society noted:
‘Thank you to Melissa and Josh. Their self-confidence came across admirably and what promise they demonstrated as singers and performers – I thoroughly enjoyed listening to them. They made me proud of my associations with Banbridge’.
The current Chairman, Mr Raymond Burrows, was very moved by their contribution and thanked them for their attendance.
Well done Melissa and Josh on making such a positive contribution and for sharing your talents!
