A Happy Christmas to you all.  I am presuming, that unlike myself, you are well on with your preparations for the festive season.  I do hope that in all the hustle and bustle, you manage to find some time to enjoy the peace, hope and joy of Christmas and join us in cel...

Having spent a big lump of time sweeping, cutting down, tidying etc. I have come to the conclusion that Autumn has arrived big time as the garden is liberally coated in leaves, dead plants and crab apples for England!!  I shall be needing a new brushhead soon.

The Choir have completed their Summer Season and were "stood down" for August for rest and recuperation.  We had a  "Bit of a Do" after our last rehearsal with a tasty buffet and Ash and Ashley entertained us appropriately on violin and guitar.  I have begun the Autumn...

The best concert ever!!! was one of the complimentary comments at the end of our performance.

After the snowdrops and crocus, the hellebores and daffodils have triumphantly fan...

This will be my last blog for this season.  We have been so busy with our Christmas programmes, I think we are all deserving of a lie down in a dark room.

The Carol Concert at the very impressive Masonic Hall in Mansfield was a first for the Masons they said, and from t...

After a mild Autumn so far, I wonder if we shall have any of the deep and crisp and even stuff.  A light dusting would accompany all our carol singing ..........but not the slippy stuff.  Recovering from a broken wrist I'm considering deleting the previous sentence!!!!...
