New Banners Ordered!

Well, we are getting close to the African Sanctus event, so we have ordered new banners ready to publicise it. Expect to see something like the following arriving soon. This time there will be four of them. I will donate a prize to the first non-committee member who emails with the correct location of all four after I announce they are in position!

A good start

Lovely to see people back after our break for the festive season and also to see so many new faces! It felt like there was a great buzz to this week’s rehearsal, so for those of you who use the spotify music streaming service (it’s free with ads, or £9.99 per month with no ads from, here is a recommended link to a version of the African Sanctus. When you click it, it will open in a new browser tab, where you need to login with your free or paid spotify account, then click play.

See you and possibly even more new members next week – same time same place.
