We are used to heavy rain at our popular events at East Meon but during this year we have also had snow and a major road closure to create additional problems. Happily supporters of The Rosemary Foundation are a determined group of people!
Nurse Lindy Coles has taken over the organisation of these events and has developed these into Craft Fairs. With her own skills in knitting items such as teddies and tea cosies she has invited a variety of craft makers to attend to showcase their own products in return for a donation.
Make a note for your diary and come to the Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday 30th November at East Meon Village Hall 10:00 ‐1:00pm. You will receive an extra warm welcome if you bring with you some cakes, preserves or jigsaws!
Our grateful thanks to Lindy for her hard work and for steering us in this new direction, which is being greatly enjoyed by nurses, volunteers and visitors.
On the same day in the evening ….
The Petersfield Chamber Choir was formed in January 2000 and quickly became established as one of the finest in Hampshire, performing to great critical acclaim.
The repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to the present day and includes the St Matthew and the St John Passions alongside compositions by lesser known composers such as Janacek and Arvo Part.
But all good things come to an end and the choir gives its final concert on Saturday 30 November at 7:30pm in St Peter’s Church, Petersfield, when the programme is a Benjamin Britten Centenary Concert. There is no charge for admission, but there is a retiring collection.
Our very grateful thanks go to Musical Director Ann Pinhey and her wonderful singers for their outstanding support over the last 13 years. Their concerts have been in aid of The Rosemary Foundation more times than for any other charity and at least £10,000 has been donated to our funds.
Do please come to the concert and hear this outstanding choir for one last time.
