There was a good roll-up last month, at which
time the members were entertained from the next room with a so-called
'a capella' singing group. They started off with 3 or 4 repeats
of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot then went on to long single-notes
held in a round i.e. some taking a breath then rejoining. Then
came the DRUMS ! All through this Peter Collard managed to give an
informative session on various aspects of web design.
No details yet as to what is planned for this
months meeting, come along and be surprised by what eventuates!
