My sabbatical was a varied experience, with many notable features:
(1) Settling in at our new church - Holy Trinity, LICKEY
(2) A visit to ISRAEL - resulting in next year's Choral Houseparty - to request details:
(3) A week in CYPRUS - we have been invited back in 2013 to lead a Mission across the Island using a Musical
(4) Great FAMILY times, resting at Weston, enjoying our new grandaughter Molly
(5) Reading, prayer and reflection - I managed over four books!

This year Mary and I celebrate our RUBY WEDDING, 40 wonderful years! On 22 July we are having a special CMM CHOIR production at LICKEY, preceded by coffee and cake at 1600. You are all invited! (Please tell us if you are coming to give us some idea of numbers.)
