A concert to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War was held at the end of October, organised by Brenda Staples and April Golding. It was a memorable evening, with music, poetry and readings by the Benefice Choir and April’s Choir. Celebration is probably not the right word, for this event, more a memorial, which showed not only the death and suffering during the war, but the shattering of dreams afterwards as well – a very moving experience, but ending with everyone joining in the old songs. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Brenda and April, the choirs and may other people who provided lighting, food, etc.
The excellent sum of £342.50 was raised for the British Legion.
