- 2cable from console to relay chamber, or it would have created a real problem. As it was we were fighting to achieve completion in time for the concert.
I often wonder how people manage without a car or some means of transport other than Public transport. During this period we had to decline invitations at the very last moment due to no Pub1ic Service being available. The New Year is the time our Scottish members and friends have their celebrations. In past years we have been to many of their parties and what parties they have turned out to be. I would love the opportunity to attend such a party in Scotland We have had the privilege of being at parties at the turn of the year over in Holland, where eating and drinking is much the same as we do, except that it is traditional for the letting off of fireworks at the stroke of midnight to herald in the new year. What a sight to see and what a noise. May I now wish you all, Our Members, Friends, Organists and Societies A Happy and Prosperous New Year and may all the Pipe 0rgan concerts give you immense pleasure. Yours sincerely, Wilf Barber. Ed ********************* DINNER DANCE REPORT by Ron Morley Although our annual "Do" seemed a little early this year, everyone was looking forward to it just the same and the Hall was quite full when I rolled up at 6.45 pm. The Vaughan Wi11iams Sound had been engaged for the occasion and the committee had done a great job with the stage decor, so all was set fair for a great evening. The proceedings began with our Chairman asking the Rev Briggs colloquially known as "Mick the Vic" to say grace for us. After a first class meal with all the trimmings provided by that catering wonder Ann Warrior and her team of experts, (thank you all f or preparing this meal LADIES, a great job well done). Our Chairman Stuart Warrior introduced our Guests, Doreen and Guy Crossley and mentioned that they gave commission from the sale of Records sold at our Concerts which helped enormously with the cost of maintaining the Organ and were duly thanked Gwen and the Hall and sometimes at concerts and
Carl Favill, who have put in many hours as caretakers of let us in and out of the Hall to work on the Organ, inconvenient times and helped in setting out for our never a complaint about our late nights.
A Happy Retirement to you both.
