Duo Mix at Aldridge Community Centre

Saturday 19th October 2019

This year’s event was held at Aldridge CC and was very successful with over 80 tickets sold.  Sarah and Corinne are the duo in ‘Duo Mix‘ and entertained us in the first half with songs from the 50s and 60s.  The range of material was extensive including  rock and roll, country and western and pop.  They even included a couple of Eurovision favourites and a Judy Garland classic.

After the break the girls changed into sequinned dresses and treated us to songs from film and stage musicals.  They added variety to the evening by doing both solos and duets.

Between the two sets, everyone enjoyed an excellent fish and chip supper supplied by the Lazy Hill Fish Bar. As always the members of the social committee worked very hard to serve up the food and clear away.  Many thanks to them and of course to Liz for organising the evening.

The Annual Lunch was held on Sunday 24th February at the Moat House Acton Trussell and was an opportunity for members to socialise and enjoy a meal in lovely surroundings.  Many thanks to Jo Taylor for organising it so well.

Next year’s lunch will be on Sunday 23rd February again at Acton Trussell.


Our next event was our annual visit to Tutbury Castle on Tuesday May 21st to see Lesley Smith as Peggy Knight. As usual she gave a most interesting and entertaining presentation about a lady whose exploits in World War II many of us were not familiar with. The format of this event was different as it was later in the year and took place in the marquee thus enabling more members to attend. Fortunately, the weather was good so we were also able to take the opportunity to explore the grounds.

Next year’s visit will follow the same format.  Details below. Many thanks to Margaret Jones for her work in organising this.
