‘A Choral Society with about 100 members ... When it was founded, the choir was under the auspices of the East Riding County Education Committee. Members paid an annual subscription fee of 10 shillings (50p), which was increased to £1 in 1973. Concert deficits were approved by the County Music Committee and paid by the Council, so the choir had no financial worries. However, in 1977, after financial support had been withdrawn by Humberside County Council, it was necessary for the choir to become an independent body ... The choir is now self-sufficient by subscriptions, grants and fund-raising activities to cover the £25,000 needed every year.‘
