Jazz Newsletter April 2020

Hello Folks

Here we are in the umpteenth week (that’s what it feels like) of isolation. Although, for some of us who are blessed with space around us it can be quite stimulating. Personally, for me this means focusing on my next ukulele recording project without any distractions. For a committed procrastinator like me the time is proving invaluable. As for Helen, she is beavering away making face masks for the local care homes as well as , of course, Grayshott Bags which are still popular with those who can still shop.

For the June session we have special guest Ron Drake. Ron is a seasoned clarinetist who has played with them all – Kenny Ball, Acker Bilk and even the Temperance Seven, I remember Ron depping with us at a Festival in North Wales some time ago. I think the only band Ron hasn’t been associated with, to my knowledge, is Chris Barber – but I’m prepared to stand corrected on this point.

Here is a mouth watering track of what to expect at some time in the future…

Keep safe everyone


Grayshott Social Club AGM

Dear member,
Under s. 8(1) of our rules the Grayshott Social Club Annual General Meeting must be held by the 30th April each year but, due to the announcement that the current ‘lockdown’ has been extended until at least the 7th May 2020, the AGM has been postponed until further notice. A new date will be fixed once the current restrictions are lifted and it is safe to proceed.

The normal rules with regard to publishing of the accounts, elections to Committee and lodging of agenda items will be followed in advance of the revised date. The sitting Committee will continue in post until the AGM.

Regards and stay safe, I’ll see you at the reopening party,

Andy Smith
Club Secretary and Treasurer
