Ups and Downs

So far November has proved to be a hectic, harrowing month for Pewsey Male Voice Choir.

We already knew that our Choral Director of the past five years or so Daryl Taylor needed to stand down in order to fulfil travelling ambitions in retirement. We wish him all the best and have set the ball rolling to find his successor. Next we learned of the passing of long-standing members, firstly, Second Tenor Bernard Gaskin from Manningford and then, poignantly on Remembrance Sunday as we sang at Milton Lilbourne, our former Chairman, current Social Secretary and stalwart Bass 2 John Marshall. Our heartfelt condolences to the families of both our good friends.

Appropriately enough some uplift was provided on the night of Tues 13th when a sizeable contigent of members and supporters went over to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance HQ at Semington to serenade the helicopter, fundraising staff and aircrew whilst handing over a cheque for £2,000 (being the sum we have raised for the service this year).

When the Clocks Go back we Switch the Attack ...

With a comparatively busy September and October now behind us thoughts now turn to the Christmas programme and, as usual, learning a couple of new songs to keep things fresh. But before that November will see us helping Milton Lilbourne to mark Remembrance Sunday, paying a visit to the Wilts Air Ambulance HQ to present our fundraising cheque and pitching in at St Johns' Medieval Christmas Fayre.
As ever, new voices are always welcome: St Johns, Church St, Pewsey - Modays 7:00pm for 7:30pm.
