Dear All,

Another excellent sing last night!  I have a number of photos from the concert we gave for the Stroke Association last month.  For various reasons we can’t put them on the website but they will be on the coming events table for the next couple of Wednesdays and I am always happy to scan in photos and zap them to you on an individual basis. 


Unspecified Wednesday in March or early April: Bring-a-friend day.  Four or five new songs for regulars and newcomers alike.  More details later.

Sunday 14 May: Shaftesbury Food and Drink Festival.  We have been asked to provide a 45 minute slot.  More details later.


Linda Hopkins (alto) writes: “Shaftesbury Methodist Church have started to hold bereavement sessions once a month on the first of the month starting on the 1st April.  If you have lost someone and you would like to have a chat together with a light lunch of bread, cheese and soup we would like to see you.”  She adds: “We also have a lovely lady called Jane who offers a hand or shoulder massage which I can say is very good.”   Chat to Linda if you want to know more. 



Saturday 1 April: Concert by Spectra Musica, Wincanton.  See attached flier.

Sunday 7 May: STUPENDOUS SINGING DAY If you like the idea of singing together with hundreds of other singers, you won’t want to miss the Dorset Community Choir Festival on at Charlton Down Village Hall (otherwise known as Herrison Hall). Although we won’t be taking part as a choir, several choir members have been in the past and have really loved it.  (Talk to Nicola and Linda in the altos amongst others.)  Choir leaders include Sarah Pennington (of Gilo ‘n’ Sarah) and Jon Conway (B Naturals).  It starts in the early afternoon, followed by an early evening concert in which choirs from across Devon, Dorset and Hampshire will perform from their own repertoire.  It's £15 for the whole event, with an additional £10 if you'd like supper. Alternatively if you prefer, you could just go to the concert in the evening - £5 a ticket.  Contact Su Lewis for information and tickets.  Tel: 01305 776106 or email her on weysound@yahoo.co.uk
