DSCF4684 (1024x606)In June 2016, we visited Terra Natura near Benidorm with some of the parents and children of Guardian Angels, the single-parent charity with whom we are both associated. Everyone had a great day and we were able to take some great photos of animals, which you can view below.

Apart from our normal choral pieces, the lads performed a range of unique pieces from Master of the House, a Policeman’s Lot, Vernon’s amazing monologue of ‘ 50 shades of Grey’, Albert and the Lion, Lonnie Donegan, a bit of Welsh, superb singing (and drumming) from Terry and Claire and her flute, with Heather’s magnificent piano as always, all brought together with the terrible jokes of our beloved President Mike Evans!

We have finally booked our long-planned trip to Vietnam and Cambodia, including an 8-day cruise on the River Mekong, for January 2017. We shall be spending New Year in Wexford at Simon and Mary Lou’s new house and Chris and Georgie will be joining us. We’ll then fly back to the UK to see Vernon’s Dad and then fly out from Heathrow to Hanoi to start our next big adventure!

He also accompanied Vernon’s dad, Phil Pearce, when he was invited to attend a special event commemorating the 80th anniversary of the first Spitfire flight on 5th March. View a slideshow of the photos he took on the day here
