First of 2018

The first rehearsal of the year, only four quire members missing, what a good start and all in good voice.

Merry Singing

Good singing, excellent company and lots of tasty food. Obviously a quire of good cooks as well as musicians.

This rehearsal was certainly a good way to end the year and thanks to Bryan and Edna for turning over their home for this rehearsal. Sadly a few members were unable to make it, they were missed and in our thoughts.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Tea and cake but no mince pies.

Pleased to help.


As a thank you for the care given to him by the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital our quire member Reg asked us to perform a fund raiser towards a MRI Scanner Appeal. The Unitarian Church kindly allowed us to perform in their wonderful building and the hospitals League of Friends put on fantastic refreshments which included great cakes.

The evening was well attended and the audience very appreciative, the quire sang brilliantly and the village band were tighter than ever and were joined by Mike a member of the audience who had come with his violin, Mike's sight reading was spot on and a great addition to the band.

A lot of money is needed for this scanner and the quire was pleased to help.

Bringing in the crowds

Our next event is being advertised around Shrewsbury, great poster so fingers crossed for a good turnout as it is a money raiser for the hospital.

Wellington Festival

The hard work paid off! The quire performed for an hour and a half to a respectable sized audience on a wet Autumnal Wednesday evening and they were an appreciative crowd shouting 'Shame and Ahhh' when we announced we were about to sing our last tune. Sadly like 'The Musical Lovers' we had no encore.

The Village Band also performed several pieces from the John Moore song book and had the audience clapping along, there was even talk of dancing.

We made a recording of the whole evening and I have to say I have enjoyed listening to it twice in 24 hours, good to hear the whole quire from front of house rather than from my usual position in the Bass line up on the back row.
