In October 2004, our long standing Musical Director, Mike Petty handed in his baton and resumed his place in the bass section of the choir. As a mark of our appreciation he was appointed a life member. We were fortunate enough to acquire the services of Anthony Milledge, a very experienced Musical Director with a thorough knowledge of choral singing at the highest level.
