Dear Broadland Ukes,

Thank you for a splendid concert on Sunday, happy faces, foot tapping, lovely band, great music and £331.62 raised for the Kings Beck Benefice plus the £30 raised for the auctioned picture.

This will be a tremendous help to us as the concert money goes towards the cost of providing a part time Vicar for our 8 village churches, just as important it brought new faces into our church.

Best wishes to all at Broadland Ukuleles and a HUGE thank you from all of us at Colby Church.

Roger and The Friends of Colby Church.

Message from Joan Hocking: Carlton Rode Church

“Just thought I would drop you a line to thank you so much for the fabulous concert you gave yesterday.

It was a wonderful afternoon and I know that everyone who attended had a brilliant afternoon.

I think we managed to raise well over £200 in the end.

We did briefly speak at the end about the Carleton Rode fete and we would be delighted if you could play at the Fete again next year which is taking place on 12th July 2019.  The Fete starts around 1 pm and ends at 4.30 pm.  I think last year you do 2 stints of 45 minutes.

I didn’t ask you back this year, not because we didn’t want you, but I was under the impression that you don’t normally do 2 consecutive years for 1 organisation and I didn’t wan to put you in a difficult position.

Fingers crossed that you are available”
