2007

The scrapbook for 2007 begins with many pages of Highlights of 2007. Much of this is about regular practices.

In March Sounds Fun visited Coleraine and there are detailed accounts about singing in various hostelries.

On March 22nd it was announced that members were to be measured, by Slaters Men’s outfitters, for charcoal grey dinner suits, white bow ties and cummerbunds.

April 25th - Singout at Bryn Masonic near Wigan.

April 27th - Singout at Stanley Grange near Hoghton.

May 26th - Came 23rd at Scarborough Convention.

June 28th - Sing & Swing - An evening with The Ray Taylor Swing Band and The Red Rose Chorus

During the year a new venue for practices was discussed. It was decided to try Lonsdale Social Club, Fulwood Hall Lane. Facilities were compared with Samlesbury War Memorial Hall, Cuerdale Lane. It went to a vote and Samlesbury beat Lonsdale 13 v 12. A further vote on who preferred to stay at BFNL resulted in 17 votes to stay. It was later decided that some of these votes were conducted illegally and an EGM was arranged.

September 1st - Singout at Kirby Lonsdale. £205 was collected in buckets.

December 7th - Singout at Stanley Grange.

December 21st - Harmony Express singout at Selfridges Food Hall, Trafford Centre.

There seem to have been a lot of visitors to club nights during this year.
