Pam calls it a day after 79 years with church choir

Music has been a constant in Waipukurau nonagenarian Pam Hewitt’s life, but last month she set down her song sheet and resigned from the St Mary’s Church Choir of which she had been a member for 79 years.

“I was hoping to hold out until September next year when it would have been 80 years, but I had quite a bad fall,” said the 94-year-old, who now resides at Woburn Home, and whose memory is sharp as a pin when recalling her early introduction to music.

She first joined the choir in September 1937, at the invitation of Mrs Bryce, the church organist at the time.
