Thu Nov 29th The next crib session will be on Thursday 29th November at 2:30pm at Shirley Social Club. As usual, it will be useful but NOT essential if you can let us know if you plan to attend this session.
The darker evenings and poor gardening conditions made for a record turnout of members at our last session, so looking forward to seeing you all again at the end of the month!

Mon Dec 3rd CHOIR CANCELLED UNTIL JANUARY
Stephen's wife Sarah underwent major Heart surgery end of September- which was successful. Stephen took time off to support her through this and had hoped to join choir again end of October.
Unfortunately, Sarah’s recovery is progressing slower than anticipated- and for this reason we are supporting Stephen in his decision, to focus the next weeks on his family and Sarah- returning to choir in January. Those that have been present at choir the last fortnight are aware this decision wasn’t taken easily.
Tue Dec 11th
