A GROUP of fun-loving Gourock neighbours put on a west end-worthy street performance which took off on social media.

Residents of Oxford Avenue have been having a socially distanced street party each day at 11am to ease lockdown loneliness.

They decided to take it one step further and record a Singin' in the Rain routine which amassed thousands of views.

Around 40 people - from toddlers to neighbours their 80s - learned the choreography taught by resident Kirsty Campbell.

They used umbrellas from a previous production that she was involved in to give the scene an iconic Gene Kelly feel and recorded it using a drone.

Kirsty said: "We have been having our daily meet up for over a month now so someone suggested that we do a musical production.

"I had all the umbrellas in my garage from when I was involved in the show a few years ago, so I choreographed a routine, put it into the street WhatsApp group and then we all performed it.

"One of my neighbours has a drone so we decided to record it and share.

"It was such a great experience and we now keep doing the routine!"

As well as the musical classic, the group also recorded a performance of James anthem Sit Down which everyone enjoyed.

Young Clark Noone, 12, is one of the residents who enjoys participating every day.

He said: "It gets me out of bed in the morning, it is really good fun and we all enjoy it.

"It gets everyone going."

The Tele reported previously how the residents had come together through a WhatsApp group and created real community spirit on the street with their daily socially distanced dancing.

Mum-of-two Kirsty added: "Not only is it good for physical health, but mental health too.

"It's great for those who are perhaps not seeing anyone just now.

"People who are working from home time their coffee breaks so they can go outside at 11am and join in and older residents stand in their doorways and participate.

"It's brought us all together."
