Good Morning Friends

The Glorious 12th of April has arrived as we slowly, but surely, make our way out of lockdown and ease ourselves towards a new normal! It’s high time that I updated you as to what is planned in the coming weeks and months. As I am sure you can understand, everything that is planned will be subject to change in order to comply with whatever restrictions may or may not be in place at the time.

Coffee Morning at Hotel Miramar 

Tuesday May 18th (as further restrictions are due to be eased on the 17th) we have booked a Coffee Morning at Hotel Miramar 10.00am – as I understand it we may be allowed up to 6 people at a table indoors, though weather permitting, we will hold the event outside on the patio with a maximum of 30.

Jazz/Soul Music Week

After the success of 2019 and then the forced postponement of 2020, we are planning to bring the Jazz/Soul Music Week back this year, running for a week from Tuesday 13th July to Saturday 18th July inclusive (when it is hoped there will be even less restrictions).

Some of these events will be Free entry, but a number will be ticketed, and some will be held outdoors subject to weather conditions. Already booked Susie Kimber Soul Band Wednesday evening, Blue Tides Jazz – Thursday Lunchtime, The Incredible Andy Quin – Organ and Piano on Friday, Mr. Zoot Money and Al Kirtley Saturday lunchtime. Further details to follow…

In the meantime, please either email or phone me to put your name down for any of the above events so we get a gauge on numbers and if paying by cheque, please post to me, via the Parish Office, St Peter’s Church, Hinton Road, Bournemouth, BH1 2EE.

Best Wishes to you all
