Enjoying Music Group

Hello All, Here's hoping everyone has managed to avoid the "plague". If you have not, please accept my very best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I am sending this missive to keep you updated on our short term plans for meetings via ZOOM as follows; 1) Wed 25th Nov at 2-30pm 2) Tues 8th Dec 10-30am 3) Wed 23rd Dec 2-30pm 4) Tues 12th Jan 10-30am.

For those who may not know, and as you can see above, we are holding additional meetings on a Wed pm for the time being. We will re-assess the situation in the new year.

For the 23rd of Dec pm meeting, being so near to Xmas, we will make up a program of Christmas music rounded off by Carols. Can I ask you to send in any requests for your favourite pieces for then.

Also let me say a big thank you to all those members who have joined in the meetings we have held so far. We are steadily gaining a few more at each, so maybe we are doing something right?

Finally, don't forget; There are two kinds of people:- Those who can count and those who can't!

Bye for now, Clive.
