25 JULY 2019

Dear All

Great fun last night I hope you agree.   As you know, our next public performance is not until early September so we will be taking a break from revising our summer song set for a few weeks and concentrating instead on learning a few news ones as well as revisiting some old favourites.  Next week we are planning to sing: Bela Mama, Listen, Riverside, Hippopotamus Song, In My Life, I Will Follow Him, Senzeni Na.

A reminder, too, that there will be NO CHOIR ON WEDNESDAY 28th AUGUST.  Please make a note of this in your diaries/ planners.   I think this is possibly the first time in almost ten years that we have taken a break other than at Christmas / New Year. Make the most of it – it’s not likely to happen again.


Saturday 7 September Singing at Castle Hill Garden party. More details later.  

Saturday 14 September  Entertainment for the Shaftesbury-Brionne Exchange.  St Peter’s Church.  More details later.  

 … and looking further ahead

Sunday 15 December  We have been asked whether we’d like to join the Motcombe Christmas Procession.  5.00 – 7.00 p.m.  More details later … much later.


This will probably be postponed until early autumn.
