Dear All,

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Another great sing last night and another great turn-out too. Wonderful.  It was particularly reassuring to see that no-one seemed to have suffered any ill effects from last week’s grilled sausage rolls too.  Next week you are invited to wear something particularly bright and colourful to help keep us in good spirits … not that we actually need anything of course.  Totally non-competitive, it would be lovely to see everyone wearing their glad rags.  Next week we will be singing: Alleluia, Siyahamba, Morning has  come, Funiculi Funicula, Leko hode nedo, Time after Time, Forever Young and Heart to Heart.
