Well Done The Choir And What A Great Party!

What a great time we had at our winter Solstice/Christmas party!

Our newly formed choir led the way show casing a jolly set of seasonal songs which were taught by our choir master, Willow Songsmith in just seven weeks!

This rousing set was followed by Jane Reynold’s story about the origins of the winter solstice with Jan Robertson picking up the baton with a thought provoking song about peace and war …

Next up were Brian Kendrick, Ruth Gillespie and Jane Reynolds otherwise the fiddlers three!

    What a great party!
    It was good to see so many people getting up and having a go, especially Jane…….what a brilliant story…….and her first public performance.
    Maybe next time Sue will grace us with a rendering from her Melodeon. (Things are getting better, really they are).
    Well done Sue.
    Thankyou.
    Happy New Year to All.

    Melodeon? That might be the quickest way of emptying the hall!
