Social Events:
Choir's New Year's Party

A happy evening's Gwent Bach Choir dinner was held in Abergavenny Golf Club on 12 January.  It was quite a noisy and much enjoyed evening with a huge raffle taking place near the end of the evening.  One or two photographs, rather second rate, were taken to record the enjoyment of the event.
