We enjoyed a really successful evening at Wombridge Church yesterday, with a varied programme of songs, solo’s and carols It was particularly good to get the audience involved,and there were lots of smiling faces at the end.
It was a special first concert for two new singers, John and Mike, who were able to realise for the first time what it feels like to be part of the choir for real.Well done to both. It has been a great pleasure to welcome you, and we all hope that there will be many more to come.
Sadly, Ray Smith, a member for 24 years, has decided to leave the choir,and he leaves with our best wishes.
At Blists Hill today we were blessed with good weather, and large crowds. As a smaller group than last year we had to work hard,but were well received,and enjoyed the welcome refreshments at “The Shakespeare Inn” afterwards.We are looking forward to singing at Idsall School’s Christmas concert on Thursday, and singing some carols at “The Wheatsheaf” afterwards..Hopefully singing carols at the Farmers’ market at the village hall on Saturday, will give us a chance to hand out some recruitment posters, and then we look forward to the new year, and new challenges.
Happy Christmas to all.!
