Upton St Leonards WI with Carole and Malcolm Brown

CHRISTMAS is coming, the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man's hat, as the saying goes, but with Carole and Malcolm Brown our singing for pleasure duo, they were worth more than that.

Coming from the North of England as trained singers they have performed their repertoire to a wide variety of audiences many being well known charities they support.

Playing and accompanying is Martin Dack a classically trained pianist of over 30 years experience, likened “as the next best thing to an orchestra”.

He is a good baritone singer and has a great understanding of the human voice.

A mixture of light hearted music followed interspersed with well know favourite carols and Christmas songs.

Marlene gave the vote of thanks for a memorable evening of beautiful songs and singing.

Lynne had welcomed all ladies and Jerusalem was sung.

Our Christmas lunch is at Bowden Hall on Thursday, December 13, our lunch club meets on January 22, at The Swan Coombe Hill.

A trip to Kew Gardens has been organised for May 14.

We will be holding a table top sale in the village hall on Saturday, March 16.

A Happy Christmas and peaceful New Year to everyone.
