TECH WEEKEND: Sunday 17 May
Due to Tech Weekend, the 17th is our final REQUIRED SUNDAY for ALL JUNIOR CHORISTERS – they will sit in the choir stalls and lead the music that morning.
All Senior Choristers not in the play, with their parent’s permission are invited to be Senior Mentors at that service.

JURY DUTY for Pallen – I couldn’t put it off any longer. Starting Monday I’m on Jury Duty. For at least the first part of the week, no afternoon choir activities – except Evensong.
