I do hope you enjoyed the New Years Day concert. We now start the summer concert season with an Organ recital at 11.00am on Saturday the 29th February. It is the Roger Smith Memorial Concert and will be given by Kathe Wright Kaufman who is Organ Scholar at Peterborough Cathedral.

I have not been given details of the programme as yet. I hope to see some of you there. The usual hospitality will be available. There is plenty of parking available in the church grounds which will be supervised by our car park monitor.
