Concert for Grove Village Hall Improvement Plans
Over £500 raised for the Grove Village Hall Kitchen Refurbishment Project
Concert Brass played to a packed house last Saturday to help provide much needed funds to improve the kitchen at the Village Hall. Items included Beatles Medley and a great favourite “Baggy Trousers”. Euphonium soloist Andrew Barber played Watching the Wheat to much appreciative applause. With the addition of the excellent raffle prizes and refreshments supplied by the Village Hall Committee the concert proved a great success.
The finale was Bier Gschicht'n with the audience participating enthusiastically in the swaying and clapping.
Saturday practices - suspended during carolling. Re-starting on 10th January, 2015.
