Sacred and Secular

We are delighted to announce that Sam Baker will be back at St Nicholas’ church on Saturday 28th October, this time with his newly formed ensemble, the Stella Maris Trio.

The concert, entitled “Sacred and Secular”, will contain a wide range of music from the 16th to the 20th centuries.  In addition to accompanying soprano Victoria Armillotta and mezzo soprano Iryna Ilnytska, Sam will be playing both piano and organ solo pieces – from Bach to Debussy.  Many of you who have attended Sam’s previous concerts will greatly appreciate the inclusion of these solo items.

Victoria and Iryna will be singing some very familiar and much-loved pieces such as César Franck’s “Panis Angelicus” and “Voi che sapete” from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, so please make a note of the date and get your tickets online here or from:
    *  Caroline Saker (01844 291825)
    *  Cuddington Stores
Tickets are £12 each with under-16s being free.

There will be refreshments and canapés during the interval and all proceeds will be going to the Motor Neurone Disease Association; the concert itself is being dedicated to Sarah Hayward, Caroline Saker’s sister, who sadly died of the disease earlier this year.

For more information about the Stella Maris Trio please visit their website: www.stellamaristrio.com

Best Kept Village Award Presentation

Following Cuddington’s success in this year’s Best Kept Village Competition, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher presented the Morris Cup and Sword of Excellence to Ken Birkby, Chairman of Cuddington Parish Council, this afternoon.  He read out some of the complimentary comments from the judges and praised the village for our efforts.  He singled out the condition of the Best Kept Village sign, the defibrillator and the lack of litter in the village as particularly worthy of mention.  Sir Henry said that Cuddington has won both the Morris Cup and the Sword of Excellence more times than any other village.

Before the presentation the Chairman of the competition, Richard Pushman, paid tribute to the late Jim Hayward, saying that Jim had been instrumental in supporting the competition over many years and was a tremendous local champion.  He said that Cuddington has set the standard of what a best-kept village should look like.

Chearsley were kind enough to present us with a splendid celebratory cake for the occasion, created by Alex Brown.  Next year Chearsley will be entering the Best Kept Village Competition for the first time.  As this year's winners, Cuddington will be barred from entering next year, and so we wish our neighbours every success!
