Bag It Don’t Bin It!

Mini-clogs add colour-co-ordinated charm

We love our new choir bags, which arrived in time for Christmas! They are printed with the front page of our
leaflet, created by one of our members, and fairly traded from India by BIDBI, a lovely young Sheffield company.   Now we will have even more of a choir identity when we go out to perform as well as somewhere to keep our folders. Already individual members are finding creative ways of identifying their bags.

BIDBI stands for Bag It Don’t Bin It and the bags are good quality and very reasonably priced too with lots of choice of colour, type etc. We were shown round where the bags are printed and everyone was very friendly. So our bags tick all our boxes!

Everybody ready?

appleChoir rehearsals start again next week, Monday 7th September. It’s the usual time and place, 6.30pm at Carfield Primary School, Argyle Close, Sheffield.

Why not come along and join us? We are a friendly bunch.

We will be learning a couple of new songs and extending an old favourite. In October we will be singing in Meersbrook Park Walled Garden for Apple Day (Sunday October 11th). After that, the rest of the term will be spent on our Christmas programme.

This weekend I’m off to Morecambe to spend two days with the wonderful Ali Burns learning how to write songs for a community choir.  So maybe I’ll come back with a totally original song for us. We are definitely getting one of Ali’s Forgotten Carols ready for Christmas this year.
