Look at this poppy display:)
St Michael & All Angels, Chalton (PO8 0BG) are having an event leading up to Remembrance Sunday. Concerts, talks, workshops, displays and exhibitions. The last time I performed a concert in this church was with my dear husband Arne Brattland and good friend Ray Burley. Arne now rests in the beautiful church yard, so the church is dear to me and I am pleased to contribute to the programme. My solo slot is on Saturday 13th November, 12pm.
