FLETCHING SINGERS: Have you thought of singing with a choir? Under the guidance of our new Music Director, Michael Fields, The Fletching Singers (www.fletchingsingers.co.uk) meet on Tuesday evenings during term time in Fletching Village Hall from 7.45pm to 9.45pm. We are a sociable, relaxed and informal group, enjoy singing a wide variety of choral music, and we put on three concerts a year. Our choir members come from many of the surrounding villages and new members are always welcome. In the autumn term (starts September 11) we will be rehearsing for our Advent concert, including the delightful Et In Terra Pax by Finzi, which we will be performing at Fletching Church on the evening of Saturday 8th December. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Alannah Dobson on 01825 760709 or email alannahdobson@hotmail.com. Why not come along to a rehearsal and then decide? (Jane Roberts).
