Marple Christmas Cracker Cancelled

Unfortunately due to adverse weather conditions the council has cancelled the Marple Christmas Cracker. It is such a shame that Secret Singers won’t therefore get to sing but we have been invited to sing at next year’s event. My sympathy goes to the organisers who must be very disappointed after all their hard preparation work.

They were the daughters of Zeus, lord of all gods, and Mnemosyne, who represented memory. Memory was important for the Muses …
