Jean from Linwood

Hi Everyone,
We are enjoying the leadership of our new Music Director, Henry, a young man who joined us in February this year, and who is so easy to work with, and such a great asset to our choir. We recently performed our first concert with Henry, and have had very encouraging feedback from members of the audience on how much they enjoyed the concert.

But, it’s your turn now! How would you like to join our choir, the RISINGHOLME SINGERS, and be part of our “merry band of singers”. Yes, we are a very friendly bunch of people, where all new members are always made very welcome. We are a 4-part non-auditioned community choir of some 28 members, but would like to add to our little group. We are now working on our Christmas concert, and are enjoying every minute.

We are therefore now looking for new members, particularly Tenors, and although it is not essential to be able to read music (although it helps!), as long as you can sing in tune, you would be most welcome to join us, as you would soon learn the music from our very helpful Henry.

We perform two or three concerts a year, and our music mostly consists of well-known pieces from movies, shows, hit records, some classical, etc., all of which we really enjoy singing.

We rehearse in the lounge of the Opawa Baptist Church every Monday evening, from 7.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m., with a short break in between.

If you would be interested in joining us, and would like to come along at the next Monday evening rehearsal, please feel free to do so.

If you have any questions, please contact our President, Jill Willmott, on 388 3235 or at risingholmesingers@gmail.com

Missing Female Tabby Cat - Sheryl

Nardia from Richmond

Our female tabby cat went missing on the morning of Sunday 6 October.
She three years old and is microchipped.
She has a black stripe starting at her shoulders going down the centre of her back, to the tip of her tail. Her tail is also quite long for her body.
She is a fairly timid cat and she is likely hiding under a house or in a shed.
Please if you live around the Richmond area (we on North Avon Road between Crystal and North Parade), could you check your sheds and garages.
There was a potential sighting around 17 and 19A Crystal Street and 12, 20 and 24 Petrie Street. If you live at these addresses please check in sheds, garages or under the house - otherwise call me and I am happy to come and check.
We really want her home.
