The Parish Church of St. Andrew's at Swanwick was the venue for a concert featuring, "Sonara" Ladies Choir, jointly organised by the Inner Wheel Club of Alfreton and the Rotary Club of Alfreton. Gail and I were greeted on arrival by Rotary Club President, Colin Fox and by Inner Wheel President Clair Nightingale.
Neither I nor Gail had heard Sonara before and were really impressed by the range of their repertoire and the impeccable quality of their singing, under the musical direction of Liz Moulder. With Rtn Richard Moulder acting as MC for the evening what could possibly go wrong.
Refreshments at the interval were included in the realistically priced entry fee of just £5.
Gail and I had a really good evening, which was rounded off by an invitation to join Jenny and Phil Harris and several members of the Rotary Club of Amber Valley and their wives. A very pleasant couple of hours was spent eating, drinking and talking about old times.
Our sincere thanks to Presidents Colin and Clair for the excellent concert and to Phil and Jenny for their later hospitality.
