Music Appreciation Group

The Music Appreciation Group meet once a month in church where a varied selection of music is listened to and mutually enjoyed.  We begin at 7:30pm on the third Friday of each month and there is a donation of £2 each month.

Thanks to Marian for acting as DJ and also to the “chair management” and refreshment teams.

No doubt welcome existing and new members will rise to the more challenging choice of “Q” themed music of all genres along the “alphabet trail” for the group’s next meeting on Friday, at 7.30.p.m. in Pakefield Church on 2lst September. Come along to share your choices or simply to listen in this wonderful venue with the usual £2. donation applying.
