We were at the Royals Shopping Centre in Southend all day yesterday with a
display stand. The expo was organised by the Southend on Sea Arts Council
and we thank them for the opportunity. We were very pleased to meet with the
Mayor of Southend, Cllr John Lamb and his wife and Sir David Amess MP who
were all supporting the event.
We were also pleased to meet many old friends of the orchestra and to make
new ones too. We had several enquiries about booking the orchestra. We
didn’t sign up any new members yet … still working on that! If you are a
violinist, cellist, double bass player, a wind instrument or “box” player
then please get in touch with us. We’ll find a seat for you!
Our picture is of Malcolm and Peter at the stand. We were strongly backed up
by Sue, Cathy and Gill … with several other YFO members coming along to
