Like any group or organisation we do have a subscription which can be paid termly at a rate of £30 or annually in September for £80. This can be paid by cash, cheque or BACS.
On the afternoon of a main concert (ie November, Spring & Summer), we have a rehearsal in the concert venue with orchestra / organ. This usually commences 2 / 2.30pm & finishes 5 / 5.30pm.
We serve wine & soft drinks in the interval at concerts & we will often make a plea ahead of a concert for donations of bottles of wine for this. If you are willing and able to donate a bottle of wine then it is most appreciated.
Ladies wear all black – ie long black skirts or trousers & a black blouse. Gents – DJs & white shirts.
A slight deviation for the November 2018 concert – please could you all wear an ORDINARY poppy on your left lapel – ordinary as in standard paper ones as opposed to ceramic brooches, knitted ones etc…..
