We had it on our hearts, as a Choir, to present a special gift to Meryl on the occasion of her 80th birthday and what better gift than to offer a birthday song as a surprise! This special surprise was an expression of love, affection and appreciation for all she has done for our Choir as Musical Director for so many years.
We would like to thank the folks at St John’s Church and especially to Judith Asquith and to Geoff Godfrey who kept the whole thing under cover until the curtain was revealed and the surprise was sprung. We could not have organised this without their help
Photographs of “Meryl’s Birthday Surprise”, which captured the moment are on the Gallery section of the website but also recorded on the day was the song for Meryl and the words of our concert compere, Paul Bennett
