“A Concert With Carols” 16/12/2017

Again this year we were invited by The Friends Of Penllergare to help raise funds for the restoration and upkeep of Valley Woods (and yes, that is the correct spelling!), and to get the Christmas season really under way. St. David’s church in Penllergaer was bursting at the seams, with all tickets sold in advance for what is becoming an annual event in the village.
We were conducted by Glyn Williams (and an enthusiastic 5-year-old girl in the audience) and accompanied by Jonathan Meads as we sang mostly seasonal songs, with Huw Roberts the soloist in O Gymru and Brenin y Sêr.
Mrs Joan Lewis MBE is well-known to the Choir, and appropriately for the Christmas season she had brought two of her young protogées to sing. Millie Colebrook sang The Bare Necessities and Mary’s Boy Child, and Maddie Denny sang Reflection and When A Child Is Born. The girls were accompanied by Joan.
Our Secretary Robert Harwood compèred the evening and encouraged the audience to join in all the carols.
It was a wonderful lead-in to Christmas week, and we thank Jennie Eyers and her many helpers for the refreshments after the concert. Why not take a stroll through the woods to blow away cobwebs during the holiday period? Their coffee shop will sustain you!
