A community choir has been voted one of the top things to do by members of a parenting website.

The BIG Sing, which runs singing classes in Witham, Maldon, Chelmsford, Rayleigh and Brentwood for parents who want a break from parenting, scooped one of the top awards in the ‘Classes for you’ competition run by Britain’s biggest parenting site Netmums.

Gemma Francis, director, explains: “It’s wonderful to know that Essex mums have fun making music in the county."
