Monthly Meeting Report

Our meeting this month was very well attended, and we all enjoyed a super morning of entertainment. After our usual notices and upcoming events, we were entertained by one of our members David Turner who read us a lovely, amusing story written by a member of the “Creative Writing” group.

Sue Owen then gave us an insight into our recent group meetings on first aid given by the Red Cross.

After we all had our coffee and biscuits and a chat we settled down to listen to a twelve strong male group of singers from Derbyshire called Yester Year who sang Acapela. In 2005 eight of them decided to get together and form a small East Midlands choir.

Now twelve strong they have entered a number of Festivals, and competitions including Gareth Malones “Naked Choir” on BBC television and did very well. The songs they sang for us included Autumn Leaves, Blue Moon, I Dreamed a Dream, The Sloop John B, and In the Still of the Night.

Their Director Len Matthews gave amusing stories at intervals during the performance to allow the choir a break. Everyone agreed they should come again. Please come and join our Coffee and Conversation on Monday November 19th in The Centre from 10am to 12pm and enjoy a drink with friends.
