Many thanks - and date of next rehearsal. HAPPY CHRISTMAS! 🎄

Dear Friends,


Many thanks to those who were able to come and sing outside Ann and Mike’s house last night. It was a very enjoyable and special occasion and good to have the opportunity to sing our Christmas repertoire. Thanks to Mike and Ann for having us there and for the hot, all butter mince pies. Delicious!


The Unitarian Church opens its doors for community activities again on Monday 10 January and our next rehearsal is scheduled for Thursday 13 January. Following on from our ‘Sing & Promalong’ at Princes Park last October, there had been some interest from the Friends of Princes Park, in taking us up on the offer of a tree Wassailing event: traditionally this is enacted on Twelfth Night - the 6 January - which, this year, falls on a Thursday. I haven’t heard anything more regarding this so I don’t think (for a variety of reasons!) it will happen but I’ll keep you updated. It would be fun to ‘Wassail the Silver Apple!’

together outside, savouring some mulled cider and festive nibbles - but I think it may well have to wait until safer times.


I realise that having both Christmas concerts cancelled, and at the last minute, wasn’t what we would have wished - particularly given how well we were sounding together - but at least the process gave us something to work towards after those months apart. And in hindsight, the voyage is often just as pleasurable, if not more so, than the arrival!


Sending you very best wishes for a very happy Christmas and for 2022. I hope you enjoy a peaceful, healthy and relaxing time.
