CONCERT POSTPONED - Coronavirus
Roger took long and careful advice on the wisdom of continuing with the concert which had been planned for 4 April, and was clear that it, and rehearsals should all be postponed until it is reasonably safe to continue.

The Choir agreed wholeheartedly that we should plan on doing the intended programme when it is reasonably safe to do so, and we hope that it can be a great celebration.

Therefore, rehearsals will cease until further notice, but it will all be under constant review.  So please watch this space!
