High summer, 2021, and at long last we are contemplating emerging from purdah: hoorah!  Come September, restrictions and personal preferences permitting, we plan to resume rehearsals somewhere, somehow, and also enjoy some social occasions, recruit new members, raise some funds, and have fun!  We have had several very cheery Zoom socials over the past year and a half– some of which were quizzes, some more of a party,  with party pieces, party food ideas – and  chatteroo opportunities, and a couple of summer picnics, which remind us how lovely are real live people in a real space! You’ll find bloggy accounts  beneath the gallery of images below… do dip in… and do please send me some of your favourite images that you have taken or made by other means. See you soon!
