Wedding

Early last Sept. the Choir travelled to Derby to sing in the wedding of a Porthcawl GP. During the evening, the choir enjoyed a get together and sing along and participated in a charity raffle. It transpired that one of our members won the prize, a giant teddy bear, which he (Simon Hughes) donated to the local children’s hospital. The letter of thanks and photo are copied below.

Concerts

The Choir supported a tribute concert to Paul Robeson, organised and produced by the Bridgend Youth Theatre. The concert was performed on two consecutive evenings. A week later we were in concert with Whitland Male Choir, where we enjoyed both the concert and the afterglow. We are now preparing for a busy Christmas schedule. Our Annual Concert proved to be very successful with Mike Doyle on top form. After the concert Howard presented a well deserved life membership award to Brian Whitehead. The past weeks have proved to be a very busy period for the Choir, with weddings in Margam Abbey and St. Davids Church Groesfaen. The social evening held in Porthcawl Rugby Club was a resounding success, thanks to the entertainment provided by the guitar club and the efforts of Phil Tew. There was no let up, as we had a concert in the P&K Golf Club  and a summer concert in Duffryn Gardens . We travelled to Derby on 2nd Sept. to sing in the wedding of a Porthcawl Doctor. The  following week we took part in a fund raising concert for our town Mayor. It is gratifying to welcome seven potential new members to the choir and we hope they enjoy the experience and our company. This is extremely encouraging and will help us to go from strength to strength.
