Another Move

Well, just 15 months after moving to the Dewi Sant Centre, we have changed bandroom again.  This has happened for various reasons, chiefly being unable to access the centre at any time. We have found a new home at St Paul's Methodist Church, and we are very grateful to them for agreeing to accommodate us.  May we have a long and happy association.


The summer (!) has not been kind, and two jobs(so far)  have had to be cancelled due to the rain.  The Civic Society Garden Party had a lucky escape, though the second half was curtailed by a torrential downpour. It's a great pity as the organisers of these events have put in a great deal of time and effort and it must be very frustrating for them.  But this is Britain after all, and wall to wall sunshine for weeks on end would get boring, wouldn't it??????

Jubilee and Olympic Torch

The Olympic Torch passed through Abergele on 29th May, and Beulah Bach were in attendance outside the Town Hall, together with the Gele singers. We performed a variety of songs, including "Men of Harlech" (5 times!!!) and "We'll keep a welcome".  Unfortunately most of the band didn't actually see the torch pass by, but at least WE WERE THERE.

On Friday of that week we entertained the residents of Murraydowns sheltered housing for their Jubilee party, and did the same for Dewi Sant Community Centre on the Bank Holiday Tuesday.  Very patriotic, and a little part of history.
