RETIREMENT OF CHOIRMASTER
On Sunday 30th March Peter Hunt led the St.Mary's Choir for the last time as Choirmaster, retiring after 30 years in the post. At the end of the service the Revd Canon Ian Cohen thanked Peter for his long and faithful service and presented him with a copy of the St.John's Millennium Bible volume of the Psalms, after which the choir sang the Nunc Dimittis by Stanford. Peter is succeeded by Chris Davenport.
FANTASTIC FOLK NIGHT
It was billed as fantastic and it didn't disappoint. All tickets were sold out for the evening and the Village Hall was packed for the Folk Gig farewell for Lee Gabel. We were given a highly entertaining evening by the four musical groups of which Lee has been an integral part, namely Lee Gabel and Kate Saunders, the 5am Blues Band, Troubshort and Turnipseed and Short Drag Roger. The music was lively and sleep was not an option even after we had consumed the vast portion of fish and chips provided by Tiago. To cap it all the event raised the princely sum of £1,185.72p for the St.Mary's Conservation and Refurbishment Project! Thank you to all the performers who gave their time and talent for the evening, to those who manned the Bar, to Hebe and Beppo who raised £9.20 with their lucky dip sweet sale, to Tiago, and to Peter and his team who arranged the whole event.
The village Hall was packed again for this very successful evening, the 11th annual quiz night. Everybody enjoyed themselves and the generous ploughman's supper, and around £750 was raised for the life and work of St.Mary's. Thank you to all who took part and who worked hard to make this evening possible.
