The Shimmy Sing was an outdoor singing event held in various parts of Tooting from on a Saturday afternoon, culminating in a mass performance outside St Nicholas Church. We sang at the back of Sainsbury's then walked to the church to the tune of Oh When The Saints. When the other choirs had arrived, we each sang a song (Tsmee was ours) then all sang MJ Paranzino's Celebrate Community, especially commissioned for the event.All photos: Matthew Marks
