Please do sign up now, as we need a quorum of 25 people at least, and it is good for the members to come together to hear about the progress of the organisation and plans for the future. We will have a shared lunch and the usual fund raising activities.

Please note that our Chairman Dave Woods is retiring from the Board at this meeting so there is a vacancy for trustee. Anyone who is interested in standing, with experience and skills which would help the trustees, please contact me, Ruth Tanner, Secretary to the Trustees, (roo.tanner@gmail.com) by 10th September.

We’re incredibly fortunate to have secured services of the wonderful Fenella Humphreys (Fenella Humphreys – about), who will play Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto with us in an afternoon workshop. It’s always a pleasure to accompany brilliant soloists and this concerto has great parts for the whole orchestra.

The enrolment form with more information can be found here.

That’s all for this week, I hope you all have a lovely return to your groups in the next week or so!

Best wishes,
