Our “Wassail” winter social, held in January, was well supported by singers and their companions meeting to share and enjoy both the entertainment and the food and drinks they had brought with them. We had a good evening, made even cosier by getting the heating to stay on – which is more than we managed last year! Many thanks to all for coming, and extra thanks to those who contributed songs, music, stories and poems, splendid! Thanks must also go to those behind the scenes who helped with the setting up, kitchen tasks and clearing up at the end. Not, of course, forgetting Margo for her efforts throughout, from organising the tickets and entertainments to locking up and taking back the hall key at the end! Thank you Margo. It’s absolutely true to say – we couldn’t have done it, or enjoyed it, without you ALL!
Emily was there with us on Saturday and we gave her a gift from all the singers to thank her for everything she does for the SDFS. She has sent this message to everyone:
Thanks so much to all of you for your generous gifts to me, I am surprised and delighted and honoured!
It is of course a complete delight to be a part of the SDFS, it goes from strength to strength and I am always in the privileged position of standing in front of you all and being bathed in the wonderful, rich sound you all make.
May this next year bring many more songs and opportunities to sing and share them.
Thanks again you lovely people,
You’re very welcome Emily.
(P.S. Lost property – If anyone who brought food on Saturday is missing a pyrex pie dish – just let us know. It was left behind at the hall but is now in our safekeeping.)
