                                                           During The Hunstanton Carnival on Sunday 29th June, late in the after-
                                                           noon as the fabulous days events were drawing to a close, the wind was
                                                           whipping with a definite chill in the air. The choir got into the swing of
                                                           their performance, voices raised with The Skye Boat Song; the wind
                                                           persisted and tried to blow their passionate rendition ‘over the sea to
                                                           Skye’, but then the clouds parted and the sun shone through and stayed
                                                           with them during their turn. Gathering momentum, the choir went on to
                                                           perform; English Country Garden, Va Pensiero, I Dreamed a Dream,

                                                             On Monday 7th July on a brilliantly sunshiny early evening, in the heart
                                                           of Snettisham, people thronged from around this community to remember
                                                           lives lost during WW1 & 2. A heart-warming event to mark the occasion
                                                           of the rededication of the War memorial in the centre of the village, and
                                                           brought tears to the eyes of many. Spectacularly all started by a fly-past of
                                                           one of the amazing RAF Tornado jets, the emotion felt through the gestures
                                                           of those who took part, the words spoken, the music played and the songs
                                                           lead by the choir.  What better way of rousing voices into action than by
