Over £1000 raised for Cancer Research UK

A big thank you to everyone who came, helped, and sponsored us at our concert on June 8th. Julie Franklin’s friend Paula sent us this email which summed it up nicely:

‘I thought I was supporting fund raising yesterday, but, as well as that, I enjoyed a fabulous concert. I was so impressed. Every act was entertaining, special and as for yourselves, I was staggered at the professionalism, diversity and harmony. Part of the secret of your success is that you obviously enjoy it so much and likewise, so did we. For a couple like us who rarely do anything significant on a Sunday afternoon, it was a couple of hours well-spent and we can’t thank you enough. The fact that you do so much fund-raising makes us all feel grateful. A big thank you.

And on the subject, Laura is absolutely wonderful isn’t she – a star in themaking. One so young who brought me to tears with her second song, raised my spirits with her first.’

13th April 40s/50s Swing Night, Halstead

Halstead Parish Council have asked us along to provide music for dancing on Sunday 13th April at Queens Hall, Chipping Hill, Halstead from 7.30pm.
We’re polishing up our swing and 1950s numbers, including this 1958 ditty from the Maguire Sisters which we reckon is the sugariest tune ever!
