Would you like to be part of a community project for Bourne?

Bourne has changed vastly in the past 100 years but one thing hasn't and that is our debt to the men who served so that our country would remain free.

We have been pleased to extend our support this year for Bourne in Bloom with the sponsorship of planters at all entrances to the town. Judging was today and let’s hope the judges were as impressed as we are with the colourful displays!

No, there not really tuneless!

Bourne Tuneless Choir was formed in 2016 and now attracts over eighty members. The aim of the choir is to offer an opportunity to anybody who loves to sing but lacking in the ability, practice or confidence to do so. The organisation believes that everyone has the right to sing whatever their voice and the right to enjoy the physical, social and emotional benefits of singing in a choir.

The Trust was approached to assist their development with the provision of a portable amplifier and wireless microphone. The choir are being increasingly requested to perform at local events and the trustees were pleased to be able to help. Our Chair, Gerry Burrows together with other members of the trust was delighted to attend at a recent rehearsal held at Bourne Abbey Church to present the equipment. Pictured below with Gerry and Sally Fox of the Trust is Linda Gunthorp and Kenneth Ring of the choir together with some of their members. Afterwards Linda said, “The purchase of the amplifier for us by the trust is a tremendous boost and enable us better quality music backing and sound when we are performing at outside venues”
