Social Events:
Choir's Summer Party:
Saturday 1 July.  Some 50 members of the choir and guests attended the Summer Party organised by the Social Committee in the gardens of Rita and Brian Stone.  With the lawn closely mown for the croquet afterwards, the tables attractively set out, and the garage in ship-shape order, an example to us all, the Stones and the Committee had taken a great deal of trouble.  What a setting it was, and a party enjoyed by all!
