The BBQ was held on the 4th September in Pamela’s garden under a rather cloudy sky. As usual Tony did the cooking while members of the choir brought salads and deserts. Despite the rather low attendance it was a very pleasant afternoon.
The entertainment provided by Professor Angela Gallop and former All Saints Singers Music Director, Dr Gulliver Ralston, was spectacular – the evening was attended by some 40 guests who enjoyed the most interesting insight into what a forensic scientist has to deal with, most of it rather unsavoury, and the hilarious songs (mostly by Noel Coward) and poetry, performed by Gulliver – with great conviction!
The host, Chairman David Russell, ably assisted by Orchestral Manager, Tony Furze, impressed everyone – by turning around the terrible daytime weather at the very last minute – to enable guests to spend a very enjoyable time eating and drinking in the magnificent grounds of his home.
I believe that the aim of raising much needed funds for the choir should have been achieved, and a big thank you to the organizers is in order.
