Last night we had a fabulous celebration at Chester Golf Club to celebrate sixty years of The Chester Ladies’ Choir. We donned our finery, including tiaras and diamonds and partied the night away.
This fantastic cake was made by Alex Earle (pictured middle), one of our committee members, who incidentally also made the beautiful table decorations. What a talented lady!
We had lots to reminisce about, some of our great achievements (winning the Rose Bowl at Biddulph) and some we’d rather forget (nice blouses ladies!). We had a toast from Mike Fisher and stories from our chairman Sandra Hughes, ex chairman Dorothy Smith, and our recently retired MD, Rodney T Jones.
Our longest serving member Brenda Harper (pictured in the yellow jacket) was a guest of Her Majesty The Queen last week at a Buckingham Palace garden party to recognise her years of commitment to choral music. Lucky girl!
There were games, raffle prizes galore and the dance floor was bouncing all night! Each lady was given a beautifully wrapped ‘diamond’ gift to remember the occasion.
Of course it was a chance for all the ladies to dress up. Here’s me having a pre-party twirl in the garden wearing my late Mum’s vintage skirt and sparkly shoes!
Thanks to all the ladies who worked on making this a success. Here’s to the next sixty years!
