Should we adopt a particular style of dress or uniform when we sing at events?
It would enable us to build up an image - something that would be recognizable from event to event, helped by our new banner. The issue has been raised before, with some people adamantly against it and others going so far as to print shirts with logos. I think consistency is important here (ie we'd all have to wear it - at all events) - but also a rationale. Why would we do this if we perform at, say, just six events a year plus a similar number of local events? John Lamb and the team have a 'uniform appearance' planned for the German trip - but no uniform as such. Indeed, is uniformity in general compatible with our professed background - namely casual singing for pleasure in the pub for ourselves and anyone else who cares to listen?
The committee discussed this at the May meeting and would now like your views. What's it to be? Dungarees with SDFS standard issue pieces of straw for our worn out hats? Or a smart lincoln green polo shirt with a neat embroidered SDFS logo above the left breast?
