More good singing last night and congratulations on finally cracking Riverside. Good to hear Run Rabbit Run (very jolly) and O Signore too, after quite a long gap. Next week we are planning on doing: Anthem (Dvorak); In My Life; O Signore; Feelin’ Groovy; One by One; I open my arms wide; Joshua; Ya Asim.
CHOIR OUTING TO COOLS FARM
A small group of us enjoyed an excellent afternoon at Cools Farm last Monday, courtesy of Maggie and Quentin Edwards, where we learned about all manner of things related to the rearing of Red Poll cattle. The weather certainly didn’t dampen our spirits in any way and the afternoon was rounded off with a delicious cream tea. A couple of photos are attached. Thankyou Maggie, Quentin and Fiona for a brilliant time.
