A singing postie brought songs to Takeley Park Mobile Homes with an outdoor concert.

Hollie Bedford performed a range of songs, with backingtrack music by Adele, Queen, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay.

Hollie from Great Hallingbury is known in the villages as `The Singing Postie` as she sings on her post round. Her work takes her to different villages as she does not have a set round yet.

She said it was her first live performance on her own and the collection raised £145.

“I’m putting it towards my own PA system so I can do things for myself and get to know the equipment. That should make this a bit easier,” she said.

“I just love music, I listen to music all day as soon as I am out of the depot, delivering, I listen to music.

“I can’t help singing along to most songs. I just do it because I love it.”
