At Monday’s rehearsal, the choir gave a resounding welcome back to Eric Parker, who had been missing with health problems since before Christmas. In addition to being a stalwart member of the Bass section and the Choir Committee, for the past six years, Eric has carried out the combined roles of Concert Secretary, Press and Publicity Officer and also administered the sales of concert tickets. A huge job indeed and time for a well earned retirement from these roles, so we took the opportunity to present Eric with a Certificate of Appreciation as a token of our regard for him and all the work he has done.
It had been decided that Eric’s role should not be passed on to one man alone, so in his place we have George Hladowski as Concert Secretary and David Barraclough as Press and Publicity Officer (see the Contacts page for details). Eric will continue to have a role in the sale of tickets to the public, but he will now have the assistance of Charles Sowden.
