Presley Lewis is a 12year old from Henry Fanshawe School who has been invited by Radio Sheffield to represent Dronfield in a programme celebrating musical talent in various localities in NE Derbyshire. He also has to submit some film footage of our town to accompany his song, as there is a likelihood that the programme will be shown on the BBC website. Having already filmed in various venues around Dronfield, Presley’s father James has been given permission by Peter to film the closing minutes of the song in Dronfield Parish Church after the 10am service on Sunday 31st October. You are welcome to be part of the filming, but if you are camera shy, just keep out of shot and enjoy watching the recording being made and hearing Presley sing. Thank you.
