Members met on Monday 16th December at Morton Village Hall when chairman Barry Gilyead welcomed members and then introduced a DVD of an Andre Rieu Christmas concert contributed by Roy Leeder. The music came from Andre Rieu’s substantial home in Maastricht in the Netherlands, with the customary large orchestra and a group of singers. Members were only able to see part of the DVD because of the customary Christmas party, with a bran tub and food, supplied by everyone. The next gathering will be on Monday 6th January.
