New Rehearsal Venue for 2016

December 4, 2015

.

This is to remind members that from January 5th 2016 we will be rehearsing at Wantage Methodist Church. We are grateful to the Primary School for hosting our rehearsals for the past few years, but we feel that the Methodist Church has several advantages as a venue, not least on the financial front.

We will have the option of rehearsing at school half-terms: whether we will do so this February (16th) is still to be decided (it may depend on whether we lose any rehearsals before then to weather and transport problems). Also, we will need to find an alternative venue on June 21st, when the church has already accepted a booking from another organisation.

Recycle4Charity

May 13, 2015

Members will have seen at rehearsals the envelopes of Recycle4Charity, who re-process our used inkjet cartridges and mobile phones and provide us with a small but steady input of funds in return.

We can no longer send mobile phones in these envelopes (a ruling by Royal Mail, not the recyclers). If you have a redundant mobile phone, please bring it down to rehearsal anyway and we can arrange despatch in more acceptable packaging.

(Please note that they do not accept Epson or Kodak cartridges).

David Eggleton

January 17, 2015

We sadly report the death of David Eggleton, a long-serving Tenor with the Society, although health problems had restricted his participation in recent terms. The funeral took place privately; a Memorial Service was held on Monday February 16th at 2pm, at which WCS made a small choral contribution.
