Saturday 25th July. The church was full for a concert by the Valentine SIngers. After several weeks in the village hall while the builders have been busy it was lovely to be back in the church and enjoy "Music for a Summer's Day". The varied programme ranged from Stanier to Gershwin and included excerpts from Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial by Jury. Afterwards the singers joined the audience for a delicious tea. The money raised will go to the church restoration funds and The Montgomery Heights Orphanage in Zimbabwe.
