Retirement Party for our Musical Director Di Crosfield

After 17 years leading the chorus as our Musical Director, the chorus held a ‘surprise’ retirement party in Di’s honour at Littleton Memorial Hall.

Joined by for past members and friends from other LABBS choruses, Di and her family took centre stage as we all enjoyed a fun-filled evening of smiles, song and laughter with entertainment ‘Tudor Roses style’ including a mass sing of our favourite songs… and to top it all, an amazing celebration cake.

30th October 2016 – LABBS 40th Anniversary Convention, Harrogate

This year was the last convention with our MD, Di. We performed with enthusiasm ‘Taking a chance on love’ and the beautiful ballad ‘You don’t know me’.

The ballad was an all-time favourite of Di’s which she had selected specially for us to sing in this important year.

A great time was had by all. The chorus gained their highest marks to date at a LABBS Convention and Di was awarded a LABBS 40 year award. As usual, the singing and laughter went on late into the evening.
