Choral stalwart cuts his mileage.
Lt Col Phil Evans has stood down as the group's leader after 12 years.
He joined the society after he retired from his post of Director of Music with the Band of the Corps of Royal Engineers.
Since then, he has clocked up almost 400,000 miles travelling from his home in Kent every Monday to attend Atherstone Choral Society rehearsals at Queen Elizabeth School, Atherstone.
The society has also said farewell to general administrator Jan Jones, from Polesworth, who has retired after 34 years. Society chairman Clive Plummer said: "Atherstone Choral Society owes much of its success and continued vitality to the efforts of these two 'veterans', who have established a gold standard for their successors."
Their last concert, at Bedworth Civic Hall, raised pounds 700 for the Royal British Legion in Warwickshire.
