Dear All,

Congratulations on a really good sing last night.  With luck, the worst of the winter weather is now behind us and we’ll soon be up to full strength.  Can you check your diaries for the Motcombe Fete on Saturday 16th June?  Even though we will probably be singing much of the same programme, with Shaftesbury Fringe / Gold Hill Fair only a fortnight later, we don’t want anyone to feel overloaded.  Details of venues / programme / times etc. will follow in due course.
