Dear All,

Our performance last weekend for the North Dorset Cycle Ride was a really cheerful affair.  Thankyou, all of you, for making the effort and joining in with the music making.  We were much appreciated I can tell you!

Flaming June will soon be upon us.  As well as the Motcombe Fete (Saturday 16th) and our pizza party on Wednesday 27th, we have been asked to take part in Shaftesbury Civic Society’s Civic Day which is a celebration of all the good things that Shaftesbury has to offer.  This will be on Thursday 21st and we have a slot at 2.30 for about 20 minutes when we will be singing outside the Town Hall.  Repertoire to be decided but it will almost certainly be taken from the programme we will be preparing for Motcombe. Please put this extra date in your diaries.
