Although we normally take a break from rehearsals during August, the social isolation that the pandemic can cause, and the restraint on holidays and socializing, meant that we held two social events, quizzes kindly arranged and delivered with great fun by Carol.

However our options to meet in Bramshaw Village Hall have been reduced, as the hall will be closed, perhaps until Christmas, to repair storm damage. Andrew has checked our music, and it is safe, but some of the larger instruments are being relocated to protect them whilst repair work is taking place.
