If you are a Facebook user, do join our Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/42649044800/ . You don’t need to become a ‘Friend’ of anyone else – in the orchestra or elsewhere – to be a member of the group.
After rehearsal quite a few of us meet up for a drink and a chat and everyone is welcome – indeed, the more the merrier. Our usual venue for this is currently The Dorset Soldier, Wareham Road, Corfe Mullen – just down the road from where we rehearse.
Social events for members and their guests have included parties, summer picnics, skittles evenings and a ceilidh. There is currently a vacancy for a Social Secretary.
Charities: Three times a year we select a ‘good cause’, usually a local charity, to be the recipient of any monies we receive via retiring collections, etc., at any of our events. Most recently (Summer 2019) this was Music Therapy at Poole Hospital.
