Message from Liz about refreshment rota for BVB rehearsals:
Dear BVB members,
Thank you to those who volunteered to do refreshments. In the interests of clarity and in order that we ensure that everyone gets their relaxing half time cuppa – I have done some re-arrangements and as Ed Gilbert (trumpet) generously offered he is in the refreshment team leader slot every time, so he takes responsibility for providing milk and biscuits and claiming the money for this from Chris.
Heather, you were the only person I couldn’t fit in on a date you wanted – perhaps you could look again.
Refreshment rota: Refreshments
I have also put a copy of the rota near the top of the ‘Rehearsals 2019’ page on the website.
