Witchert Chorale Concert on March 28th
On March 28th the Witchert Chorale, with Golgatha Kantorie an associated choir from Berlin, gave a concert in Cuddington church before a packed audience of over 100 people. The English choir was conducted by David Quinn and the German choir by Martin Kruger.
The programme included works by Jon Tavenor, Brahms, Mendelssohn and Elgar, and also contained readings by Andy Hardy.
It was, as is usual with the Witchert Chorale in Cuddington, very well received and gave much pleasure to the audience.
The proceeds were in aid of the Utugi Street Children Kenya Project, and a handsome total of £1.207 was raised for this cause.

Remember the Fete when you start clearing out!
The Sun’s out, the flowers are on their way and I am sure we shall soon be donning our marigolds and getting stuck in to the traditional English Spring Clean. Well don’t forget the Fete when you start bagging up your old bits and bobs. We would welcome all donations of bags and beads (to go direct to Denise's) and any books, toys, bottles or bric-a-brac. Phone Jo (292958) to arrange a collection time or drop off at 10 Bernard Close whenever you are able.
Many thanks, Jo Goodson
