Midsummer seems a long time ago but the memory of a most enjoyable June evening lingers. Over seventy of us relaxed in the beautiful gardens of The Old Rectory, Quinton, listening to the Musica choir going through its repertoire – something for everyone as the invitation rightly put it. The spacious terrace was ideal for such an event and so was the weather. For those seeking tranquility the gardens beyond the terrace were the place to go. The event raised over £1,300 and our thanks are due to Alan and Emma Kennedy, the creators of this attractive space, for kindly allowing us to share it with them.
