At the Club AGM in July we were surprised and delighted by a visit from our Club President who addressed us after the short but necessary business proceedings. He said he had joined us to find out why the Club was so successful when so many are floundering in present times. Roddy spoke of how he was impressed by the organisation and was pleased to be associated with us. We, of course, are thrilled to have his support and were amazed that he found time in his busy schedule to join us on this occasion – the first time a Club President has ever attended an AGM! Roddy regrets he is unable to attend the first concert of the season due to an engagement as Papageno at Covent Garden, but sends his best wishes for the season. Pianist Adelaide Yue treated us to a wonderful recital afterwards and the evening concluded with drinks and canapés which were enjoyed by everyone. If you missed this AGM, you missed something very special. Do make a note of the date of the next one – Thursday 5 July 2018. Although we cannot guarantee a repeat visit from Roddy, we can promise you a memorable free recital and delicious refreshments afterwards.
