Concert for Christian Aid

It’s Christian Aid Week next week and we are holding a concert to raise money for this vital charity on Friday, May 26th at 7.30pm at St George’s.

There will be music from soloists and groups, including Saxooma saxophone quartet, choirs, a singalong, dancing, a raffle, drinks and nibbles. Tickets are £5 (children free) on the door.

This year, Christian Aid Week is focusing on Malawi where food, fuel, fertiliser and school fees have doubled in price in the last 12 months, and hard-working farmers are seeing their harvests fail as the climate crisis brings increasingly erratic weather. The impact of the recent Cyclone Freddy in Malawi has been devastating. Floods have washed away crops, over 500,000 people have been displaced and hundreds have lost their lives.

Please support Christian Aid at this concert and via their online appeal here.

Midsummer Magic

Enjoy some Midsummer Magic at St George’s on the evening of Friday, June 24th, at 7.30pm, when Carillon Singers and the Parish Choir come together for an evening of light music, African songs, some well loved classics and new songs.

There will be refreshments in the church hall following the concert. Just come along and enjoy the evening – no need to book.

This will be the last time Carillon will present under the leadership of Samuel Rolles. Looking forward, Carillon will have a new Musical Director, and are looking for new choir members. If you are interested, please look at the website, carillonsingers.co.uk or ring 01252 655849 for more details.

Thank-you to Barry!

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.


He also raised £500 for church funds.

Thank-you too to Georgie Fry for such beautiful photographs of the event!
