Choir – 16th January 2019

Important reminder for members: Our next meeting is at 11.30 am on January 16th, 2019 at the John Godber Centre – this will be our final meeting at the Centre. We shall finalise details for the move and, if there are any additional queries, deal with those. From then on we shall meet at our new venue. We have been very fortunate to be offered the new venue, we have been struggling financially due to absences, this offer is enabling us to continue.

To confirm, and for the benefit of those members absent from the last meeting, our new venue is to be Sherwood House, Linby, the days and times of our meetings remain the same, parking is available and free.

Advance notice: our first meeting at Sherwood House will be at 1.30 pm on the 6th February,2019 and, as the doors are kept locked and need opening for each visitor, we have been asked to make a practice of entering together. I suggest we all arrive before 1.20pm and enter then.

Choir News

2018 has been a tough year for the choir. Our Musical Director suffered a stroke and was absent for some time. With difficulty, Margaret, our accompanist, generously took both roles, and soldiered on with us. Our founder and co-ordinator of eight years felt unable to continue, and numbers generally have been down, due to ill health or injuries. Thank you for setting us on our way, Doreen, and we hope things soon pick up for you and for everyone.

Nonetheless, we have performed five concerts in the last few weeks, which we’ve enjoyed, and for which we’ve received some very nice compliments and thanks. We’re pleased Christine is well and back with us and I’d like to thank both her and Margaret for all their efforts and patience this year. We should welcome more members, and with a new programme of songs planned for the new year, this would be a good time to join us.

We begin 2019 with our first meeting on the third Wednesday of January, members please note the time and date, 11.30 am on the 16th January, 2019.

Merry Christmas Everyone!”
