    Autumn Term 2018

    Baptist Church, Main Hall

    The new term began on Thursday 20th September 2018. The choir is such a positive and enjoyable experience that all the members from the previous term wished to re-join, which means that the choir is currently running at capacity. There were several very enthusiastic people wishing to join but unfortunately we have had to ask them to join a waiting list.  Judy Matthews, the membership secretary will keep those people informed of any vacancies. Anyone wishing to discuss joining can contact her by email: judymatthewsbc@gmail.com
