    We are so pleased with our Chorus Results at the weekend. We were second in the Chorus competition and perhaps more importantly the "Most Improved Chorus". This is a credit to all members who worked so hard, our Musical Director Gavin Hurley for his talent and inspiration and to our families, friends and supporters.  For those of you who are past members or considering joining us now is a good time as we reset our goals and repertoire.
