We had the lovely May weather we hoped for and gardens blossomed beautifully. Rain was needed and our prayers were answered. However, the most grateful recipients of the rain seem to be weeds and snails. 106 snails were collected during three days and they went on their holidays in the garden recycling bin. Happy days!
We have our Annual Summer Concert on 1st June at the Jubilee Hall, Wellow Road, Ollerton, at 7.00pm. There are posters out regarding the concert and there is a contact number for tickets, but they would also be available from any choir member.
We already have a booking for Christmas! Our secretary Pauline, on 07951 609217, would be delighted to hear from anyone wishing to book us for their celebration, anniversary, fundraising or charity event. We rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm to 9.00pm, upstairs in the Theatre Refreshment area at the Dukeries Academy, Ollerton. This is best accessed via the Leisure Centre entrance and car park.
We can be found online at www.thedukeriessingers.com, on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
ST GEORGE’S DAY
We were invited to sing at the St George’s Day celebrations in Ollerton. We fielded a good-sized choir and the event was really well supported. Our two sets of songs went well and we were applauded by the visitors. Ash was impressed by the sound we delivered, helped by the two microphones. I’m afraid one of us didn’t realise that the mikes were live! Say no more, but it did provide a bit of a giggle. Fortunately, the sun shone so we were able to perform outdoors which was the intended plan and we all enjoyed singing in the (a bit) fresh air. I do hope we are invited to perform next year. It’s a good, fun work out performance. Well done to all who managed to be there.
