Thank you Barry for a lovely concert on Friday evening.
Barry arranged everything from the tickets, to the refreshments and introduced all the items. He played lots of different organ music, which we do not hear on Sundays! And must have practised for hours! He played the tenor recorder, he arranged practises for everyone at times to suit them and accompanied many different items on the piano.
There were also recorder duets, a flute solo, vocal and instrumental duets and trios in a variety of musical styles. Barry organised a choir made up of lots of his friends. The Parish Family band played and there was lots of audience participation, and hearty singing from everyone.
SO ANOTHER BIG “THANK YOU “ TO BARRY FOR A LOVELY MUSICAL EVENING.
He also raised £500 for church funds.
Thank-you too to Georgie Fry for such beautiful photographs of the event!

Crafters and others will be able to sell their wares at a Christmas Fayre which will take place on 13th December from 2-5pm at St George’s Church, Badshot Lea
The Parish of Badshot Lea and Hale have decided to bring a bit of Christmas Spirit to Badshot Lea this year and hold a Christmas Fayre.
Lucy Bridger who is leading the team said:
“We need volunteers for helping out, cakes for the cake stall, tombola items and we especially need to hear from crafters! Anyone who is a crafter and would like the opportunity to sell their wares can buy a table and they need to contact me, either by email – firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone – 07792 858850”
Parish Priest The Revd. Lesley Crawley said:
“People remember with great fondness the annual parish fete in Badshot Lea which was held in the old vicarage gardens. When the new vicarage was built, there wasn’t room for the fete in the little garden and sadly the event fizzled out. We wanted to start a new community event in the village and decided that a Christmas Fayre inside the church sounded like fun.”
“We hope that the idea will take off and that it will become an annual event and a great opportunity for local people to meet and have fun together. The proceeds will go to much needed church funds.”
