Enormous thanks to everybody for their contributions, financial & otherwise.  We raised £1099, with £320 of that coming from the sale of Christina's honey over the last several weeks.  Thank you, Christina!
Particular mention should also be made to Maison Francaise for their generosity in waiving the rent for this charity evening.

Vita Granelli

We have just heard the sad news that Vita Granelli died last weekend.  She used to play regularly at Summertown, almost always with her friend Jill Brandini.
