Tickets are now on sale for a concert at St Mary's Church, Eaton Bray in aid of Christian Aid which is to be performed by the Edlesborough school choir together with selected soloists. They will be joined by some talented past pupils and young musicians from St Mary's Church.
The organisers are hoping for a really large audience for the concert in support of this excellent charity which helps the world's poorest communities including those in recently devastated Burma and China; please come along and ask your friends and family to come too. Tickets are available from Catherine Hayden or Barbara Morton.

On Wednesday 6th June, Edlesborough School held a concert at the Eaton Bray church. It was raising money for Christian Aid. The orchestra, choir and some soloists performed. It started at 7:00pm when all the parents started flooding in.
The Edlesborough School choir were on first with a jolly song, they got everybody clapping. After a while some children who used to go to Edlesborough Schoolarrived, they also gave us a good performance. People from church were there including their choir, orchestra and a brilliant organ player!
It was soon time for the interval, drinks and biscuits were served. Raffle tickets were also on sale. All the money went to Christian aid. There were some lucky winners who were given some very nice prizes. It was getting on to 8:30pm when they started the second half. It was just as good as the first and all went well. The concert finished just after 9:00pm and everybody went home feeling proud.
£529 was made over all. It was a very good result !
