The welcome return to The Stream Of Sound, a talented young persons' choir with a very unique a cappella sound.
Their wonderful music was soon ringing around the Church, and feet were tapping and faces smiling all around the audience as the youngsters sang us beautiful gospel songs, jazzy numbers and moving ballads. A glorious night was had by all !

"sit and enjoy" !
Mel Thomas was the after-dinner speaker, and from the look on friends' faces, went down very well. I had a very nice letter back from Mel, thanking us for the welcome you all gave him : it will be pinned up at the back of the Church for you all to read.
The sum of £177 was raised - thank you all.

One of the dancers has sent us this letter :
Dear folks -
The Barn Dance last Friday evening was
out of this world, as the "poor little old
lady" who joined in all the dances (I was
named the "Belle of the Ball" !!)
Love - Mary

Thank you to all who gave donations too - the grand sum of £855.32 was banked. See you all next year, God willing.
Around The World with Gabriella
Friday 25th October
The Social Evening, with entertainment by Gabriella, went down very well. We were all soon laughing, and tapping our feet in time to the music. Gabriella had so many
ukuleles with her - all shapes and sizes : and the stories she told brought tears to our eyes.
