Wednesday 5th August

This in from Pete Shaw:"Hi all, just to let you know that the gig was a great success for the Bro Glyndwr Choir, Ann Atkinson (MD) & myself at the National Eisteddfod on Sunday. Unfortunately the whole show ran an hour late so it meant us appearing on stage around 5pm instead of 4pm. The whole afternoon performances were shown live on S4C TV Channel".

We have just heard from Jeff Harding that Great Yarmouth Keyboard Music Club has been reprieved. It had been thought that the club would close at the end of this year.

It is great news that the club has been saved and we wish them the very best for the future.
