Maria tops the charts again!

A FORMER ARBROATH lady has scored a number one album as part of one of the country’s top choirs.

Maria Dudley, who attended Ladyloan Primary and worked at Specsavers in the town, is part of the Military Wives Choir that stormed the charts at Christmas with their single ‘Wherever You Are’.

And now their debut record called ‘In My Dreams’ hit the top spot on Sunday featuring renditions of songs such as ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay and ‘With or Without You’ by U2.

The choir comprises wives of serving military personnel and featured in a BBC2 series where Gareth Malone acted as their mentor.

Maria grew up in Arbroath but now lives in England with her husband Corporal Chris Dudley, who is based at RMB Chivenor and their daughters Lauren and Laila.
