Christmas celebrations started a little early for the Choir when Colleen Gauntlett, wife of our PRO, Lyn came to the choir hall and resumed a tradition she started a few years ago. Colleen presented a self baked Christmas cake for consumption by the choristers at half time at practice on Monday 21st November. Many of you will remember the cakes she made for the 50th Anniversary celebrations.
The early presentation was because both are away on holiday during December. Layers of chocolate sponge filled with butter cream and coated with icing and decorated in a Christmas wintry theme, the cake was consumed within minutes by the appreciative choir who all expressed their appreciation, many lining up for seconds. We’re all looking forward to your next cake, Colleen. The photographs show Colleen cutting the cake while baritones Tommy Hole, Leon Jones and Tony Griffiths look on in anticipation.
