Christmas 2018

2019 NewsPosted by Solna Burnham Fri, January 04, 2019 14:45:10

As always we were busy over the Christmas Period.

We began with a visit to Gilstead Ladies in their impressive new venue at the café attached to the new Fern House on Fernbank Drive. Space was a bit short there but they made us very welcome and even provided a supper after our performance.

We returned to Shipley Musical Union at the Anchorage. This is always a group where there is plenty of room for us to perform and the sing-a-long part of our performance goes so well with their strong voices! However the Achorage is closing down now so they are also looking for a new venue.

In fact it was a season of returns. As you will also have seen we returned to the Western branch tower bell ringers carol service and to a Mason's event at Hoyle Court, Baildon.

We were very busy over the Christmas period and had to turn away a number of late enquiries. The message for 2019 is “Book Early!”

After a well deserved post Christmas break we returned to ringing on 16th January 2019 with a number of new and recent recruits which makes us optimistic for the future. Until Easter we are trialing practicing each week on Wednesdays at 7pm in the vestry although we may move to Church House during Lent if there are any services at this time.
