Vicky, Anne, Charlotte and John at the Chipperfield Village Day Saturday 14th July

 

This was a delightful and popular family event at which the Choir was well represented with a colourful and attractive stall.  Anne Wyburd reports- I initiated the project of having a Choral Society stand at the Village Day and John Morrish took over a lot of the organisation. We had a very good day. John Walker brought his gazebo and we decorated it with posters and programmes. John M and I devised a quiz and 20 people took part. Three got all ten questions right and we chose one out of a hat for the prize (two tickets to the Christmas concert).

 

If you entered the quiz and would like to know what the correct answers were,  see below
