We were privileged to have within the Congregation Retired General John Larsson & Commissioner Giselle Gowans ( Former Soldier at Chatham Corps).
Thank you Bromley Corps for the support you gave us , and to those who travelled from Chatham .
Our thanks to Bromley Songster Leader Howard Elliott for greeting us in the Afternoon, and those that baked the beautiful cakes . We also appreciate the support provided by the Band , thank you
At present our Songster Brigade is missing the superb support of our regular pianist Carole Horwood & the piano duties are being shared by Lisa Davis , Kate Boughton & Carolynn Woodman. However for this event Carolynn called in the Services of her friend John Hayden , a colleague in the Nchant Choir which Carolynn also leads . John was originally just coming to listen , but was then Co-opted to play the piano for some songs and Clave for Cantar , so thank you John.
We also had a guest appearance from David Lockwood on percussion , David not only played for us , but he played for Bromley Band as well . You certainly earned your cake David .
