EVENTS GONE BY…2014:Russian Choir 'Resurrection'
The second in the series of Live at Black Bourton concerts, Resurrection treated a packed house to a sublime evening of music, ranging from Rachmaninov to Russian folk songs. Ably led by their conductor, Jurij Maruk, each singer was an outstanding soloist in their own right and proved it through superb ensemble performances and solos ranging from Soprano, Counter Tenor and Basso Profundo. Bravo! We shall look forward to welcoming back to the church on their next UK tour.
A wonderful return to the village of a classic Village Fete featuring Witney Town Band, The Time Out Animal Sanctuary and Mark Thomson's excellent Gun Dog display. In all, more than £2,600 was raised for the Church Fabric and Village Association funds.
A fantastic time was had by everyone who attended this year's village drinks on Sunday 8th June. The weather was in our favour so the marquee was used only for shelter from the sun!
In all, around £300 was raised, some of which will be donated to the ongoing church roof fund raising campaign.Live at Black Bourton
On Thursday 22nd May, the first in the series of concerts being held in St Mary's Church went down a storm, with concert-goers dancing in the aisles as 'Funk Line Quartet' played modern jazz in a funk style. All in aid of the church roof as well as raising money to host future events. In all, £600 was raised through ticket sales and kind donations on the night.

Thank you to all who took part in the very successful Coffee Morning on Saturday 5th April. A whopping £378 was raised, to be split between the association and the church fabric fund.
