‘Twas the night before Christmas …… well three weeks later really …. when the Chorus celebrated a busy festive season with our annual ‘Post Christmas Dinner’ at the Crown Hotel. 

The occasion provided an ideal opportunity for us to recognise the sterling efforts of our former Musical Direcor and current Chairman, Harold Blackburn. There was wide acknowledgement from all members in attendance that Harold really has been the ‘glue’ holding us all together over the past four years or so, both as Chairman and in directing us musically. Our longest serving member, Mike Tasker, made the presentation of some engraved crystal cufflinks and thanked Harold on behalf of the Chorus for all his hard work and commitment in expanding our membership and developing our sound. 

In that time, Harold has also overseen our quest to appoint a Musical Director for the longer term and we’re delighted that Terry Burns has come in to take up the mantle for a probationary period. We wish Harold and Terry all success in taking us forward now into 2018 …. and hopefully …. in the words of Buzz Lightyear ….. “to infinity and beyond !!”
