Organized to celebrate International Women’s Day, the ladies of this medal-winning chorus did not disappoint. “We are very grateful to the town hall for inviting us to celebrate international women’s day in the best way we know how” said MD, Wendy Grant. “Spangles is made up of some great women and we were delighted to sing for the people of the town”.

    Cream Teas and Sunshine

    We were delighted to take part in the fundraising cream tea event at St Nicholas Church in Camposol on Saturday, 3 June. The day turned out to be a very hot one, with temperatures of around 27 degrees centigrade, but we were well cared for, with cover against the glaring sunshine. Our MD, Wendy, wasn’t so lucky but, being the trouper that she is, she stood in full sunlight for both of our sets (Wardrobe may need to make her a sunhat!). Many supporters consumed their cream teas while we sang and were happy to join in with some audience participation. [flagallery gid=34] The whole afternoon was well-organised and we…
