Kent Police Male Voice Choir


Chris Longfield

This page was updated in June 2016

Chris sings in the baritone section of the choir. He was one of the original founder members. Shortly after the choir's inception he was posted to a new job in the police, where the hours of work were not compatible with choir practices and concerts. Chris therefore had to part company with the choir. However, he rejoined in early 2002 after persuasion by two members who happen to be his neighbours.

Chris has previous singing experience as a member of a church choir and of a Gilbert and Sullivan society. He has always had an interest in music.

After retiring from the police service he worked for eight years as an insurance claims investigator, following which he changed career again to take a job as operations manager for a Kent based travel company. Like other members, Chris is enjoying retirement and is also a volunteer for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.

Chris was the choir's secretary for twelve years and stood down in 2016. He was elected as an Honorary Vice President in the same year.

Chris likes gardening and takes a keen interest in cricket. He also enjoys spending time with his family.

We're glad you rejoined us Chris.
