On Friday last we joined about a hundred others so see and hear an amazing performance given by a group of seven members of this choir. The harmony and projection of their voices was superb and they filled the Church with sounds probably never heard before in the Parish of St Mary. Each member was an accomplished soloist and the bass voices sent tingles down the spine. The first half was of Religious music and the second Russian Folk music. Apparently we were chosen as a trial venue prior to a further visit to the Country next year There was no doubt as to the audience reaction – two standing ovations proved their popularity and the Choir still had to beg to leave even after their two encores! It was an exhausting but wonderful experience. I sincerely hope we shall see them again.

Goring New Life Baptist Church was the venue for the celebration of two significant Anniversaries on the 20th July. Two members of the Church, John and Cissie Nicholson had completed sixty years of marriage and the Minister, The Rev. Nigel O’Dwyer and his wife Caroline had reached their thirtieth Anniversary. They were able to recall their weddings when they cut a special Anniversary cake with all four names on it. Two huge bouquets were presented to them. A team of ladies worked hard to provide a lavish tea for the couples and their friends and relatives and Church members.
