Barnhill Court Summer Party

This afternoon we provided the musical backdrop to the Summer Party held at Barnhill Court in Chipping Sodbury.

This was our second appearance at this residential site which houses 60 retirement apartments, and we were accompanied by four of our wives – perhaps the scones and cream had attracted them to this venue!

We were located in the restaurant area: at one end of the restaurant the cream teas were being served as well as glasses of Pimms; external doors led onto a terrace where many of the residents sat in bright sunshine. The home’s reception area was taken over by stalls selling various items to raise funds for the Royal Voluntary Service.

The party was well attended by the residents, and several of them could be seen singing along to our music as they moved around the restaurant.

Singer Roger Whitehouse was missing today’s performance due to another commitment in France. We sang in two sessions with an interval for a cream tea: the first session was between 3:15 and 4:00pm; the second session was delayed by a lengthy raffle draw and started at 4:45pm. We finished at 5:05pm with an encore. The programme is shown below:-
