Piano and Organ Recital – Barrowden 28th October

Piano and Organ Recital

St Peter’s Church, Barrowden

Saturday 28 October, 2017

12:30 – 14:00

This is a “not to be missed” opportunity to enjoy the playing of two of Barrowden’s truly accomplished musicians, John Comber and Jean Swinbanks.  They have put together a fascinatingly eclectic range of music for both organ and piano.

The recital will showcase pieces as contrasting as Elgar and Gospel, Bach and Jazz – and you’d have to travel a long way to find such a diverse mix!

The recital starts at 12:30 with an interval at 13:15 when light refreshments will be served – wine, soft drinks, coffee and small eats. We plan to finish at about 14:00

Seating for the first 40 who apply will be in the nave, and after that it is free seating, a bit like flying with easiJet but more fun!

Amazingly there is no charge for the recital.  However there will be a collection at the end with all donations going towards the cost of the new Thirlmere Organ.  The pieces that John plans to play are designed to demonstrate the versatility of this new piece of kit!

Please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to come – then we can make plans for the catering.  And oh yes, bring a friend, the more the merrier!

So, if you fancy coming along please contact any one of the following:

John Comber [747447]

Steve Preston [747098]

Peter Voller [747374]

New council ward boundaries for Rutland

You may be aware that the Local Government Boundary Commission is asking local people for their help to draw up a new pattern of council wards for Rutland County Council and are holding a consultation that will run from Tuesday 25th July to Monday 2nd October.

The consultation is the first part of an electoral review which will re-draw ward boundaries across the area with the aim of ensuring that each councillor represents roughly the same number of voters. The review also aims to ensure that the new council wards reflect, as far as possible, the interests and identities of communities across Rutland. Please note that the commission has recommended that the number of councillors should remain the same.
