The reception room (normally a school staff room) is on your left. You should find
Elizabeth our Secretary and David our Chairman\Librarian awaiting members’ arrival.
Giles or Michael may be on Treasurer duty.
Arrangement of the Hall
We usually have two rows of chairs for choir. Altos are at the far end nearest
the stage, then Basses then Tenors. Sopranos are at the end nearer the entrance.
When we finish on Sunday could you help put the chairs in piles of 8 and leave them
in the main body of the Hall, or allow others to do so?
These are in the corridor adjacent to the hall (leading off the Main Reception area),
and in the long corridor parallel to the car park.
What to bring.
Please bring a pencil and a rubber as well as your music. You will need these if
you use hired copies. See section below about food and drink.
PLANS OF THE ROOMS WE USE
You could buy your own copies of the choral scores or make arrangements with our
Chairman\Librarian to buy through him. He will do so if you obtain and return an
Order Form to him in good time. Breitkopf edition is preferred.

You may be able to borrow hired copies when the librarian has them available.
You could obtain your own free copies by downloading and printing from the internet.
We have to be totally self-sufficient regarding food etc. There are 3 rooms available
for eating and drinking: the room adjacent to the Hall (with small kitchen and kettle),
and two classrooms at the far end of the long corridor parallel to the car park,
one on the ground floor and the one above it on the 1st Floor.
