The choir combined a social day with a joint concert in Ripley church with their Benefice Choir. It was a gloriously sunny day in the very picturesque village of Ripley. We celebrated the summer with an entertaining and informative guided tour of Ripley Castle (well worth a visit) followed by a lunch there and a stroll around the grounds.
The 'Songs of Summer' evening concert was held in All Saints historic church in aid of a Christian Aid Community Partnership Project in Burkina Faso. Not only was there great music from both choirs but also tasty refreshments: providing food for both body and soul.
