PRESIDENT'S CHARITY CONCERT - Saturday October 22nd 2016

 

The President's Charity Concert took place at St. Andrew's Church. A large audience was treated to a fantastic evening of music with items by the Community Choir, a guest flute duo, piano solos and duets and vocal solos. Headline for the President and Consort was Widor's Toccata played superbly on the church organ - their wedding music (way back in the 70's!). Not unsurprisingly it was also similarly meaningful for a few others as well!

A superb finger buffet with wine ensured the evening was a great success. A sum of nearly £500 was raised for the president's two charities, the RNLI and Riding for the Disabled.

PRESIDENT'S TRIP - MAY 2017

 

Brilliant, fantastic, informative and VERY enjoyable. These are a few words to describe the President's recent trip based in Dunfermline.   The trip was an exploration of Robert the Bruce, Mary, Queen of Scots, and some amazing modern sculptures relating to Anne's love of horses.   Starting in Melrose, we found the heart of Robert the Bruce, explored Dunfermline Abbey and saw his tomb.   At Loch Leven, in brilliant sunshine, we crossed the Loch in small boats to Castle Isle where Mary, Queen of Scots was held.

Moving from the ancient to the very modern, we marvelled at the building and design of the Kelpies near Falkirk - horses' heads of 30 metres high, made from plates of Sheffield stainless steel.   Back into history, we enjoyed a 3-D re-enactment of Bannockburn and explored the wonderful 14th Century Calendar House.   We then returned home via the Devil's Porridge Museum.

A wonderful trip - from the13th to the 21st Centuries, all beautifully researched and organised by Anne and Martin Mould, and Margaret Fall - thank you !

Lord Mayor's Civic Service

On Sunday 21st May President Willy Coupar, with 5 other members, were guests of the City of Sheffield at a Holy Mass in the Cathedral Church of St Marie, to honour the new Lord Mayor of the City, Councillor Anne Murphy.

 

The Mass which was conducted by the Bishop of Hallam, the Rt Rev Ralph Heskett, was memorable in many ways, in particular the music content both by the Cathedral choir and instrumentalists and indeed the gusto in which the congregation as a whole sang the hymns.

 

Following the service we attended a reception in the Town Hall where, in a less formal setting, we had the opportunity to meet not only the new Lord Mayor, but also re-established our links with the other kindred societies.

 

On what was a gloriously sunny morning, the blaze of tartan paraded by our representatives certainly promoted the standing and raised the profile of the Society in the community.

The annual Inter-Society Quiz, always an evening of intense rivalry, was organised again by the Cambrian Society.

A record turnout of members from the Cambrians, the Royal Society of St. George, and the Caledonians, ably led by President Willy Coupar enjoyed a thoroughly convivial evening. To cut a long story short, we won – again!

 

Finishing with superb fish and chips ensuring that everyone had another excellent evening.
