December 2008 - Nearly at the end of the year and busier than ever! At the beginning of the month our ELS choir sang at the Mencap Christmas Carol Concert at Worcester Cathedral. We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed the venue. Many thanks to everyone involved in organizing the event, you did a great job!


Preparations continued unabated back at Pitcheroak School as we finalized our own Christmas Concert just before the school holidays began. And what a concert that was too!


We will soon be launching the Alvechurch Community Choir, our brand new singing group. As the New Year looms why not ring the changes and join us? You absolutely won't regret it. Need some more encouragement? Listen to what Brian Eno had to say when asked by Jarvis Cocker to put forward his manifesto for 2009. The interview was broadcast on BBC Radio 4's 'Today' programme on 31st December 2008:

November 2008 - Thank you to those of you who kindly pointed out our email address was not working. We wondered where all the mail had gone! You'll be glad to hear it has now been well and truly 'sorted'. Feel free to drop us a line so we can keep in touch.


What happened to November? We have been busy, busy, busy! The ELS choir went out 'on the road' and sang 'I Wish' for Edward's Trust at their Remembrance Service. Beautiful! Well done to one and all - including all four members of Pitcheroak School staff who gave up their free time to drive the team over and help throughout the performance.


We are now busy preparing for our part in the Mencap carol concert at Worcester Cathedral. Watch this space, we'll let you know how we get on.


Keep your fundraising ideas coming in and if anyone would like to organize something, let us know!


Mr G. and Blue visited the Palace Theatre, Redditch for a meeting with Faye Todd. They had a great time discussing new ideas and exploring new avenues. Faye watched the ELS DVD for the very first time and was very impressed with what has been achieved so far.


October 2008 - The month of the big launch! Our website goes live and our promotional DVD (courtesy of Sam Genders of Blue Hippo Media, Julia Gross Photography and Simon Reece of Beardfreak Designs) is almost ready for pressing. The full cost of pressing and printing has been met by private donations dedicated for that purpose.


If you would like to see a compressed version of the DVD files, we can have them uploaded in a jiffy! Alternatively if you would like to have your very own freshly pressed & printed copy, we are happy to oblige - for a small donation of course! All funds received will help us to continue and grow our work. Just contact us and we'll let you have the details.
