Coffee Day at Barbara and Rob Powell’s Home

Coffee Day for the North Shore Organ and Keyboard Club this month was held at the lovely home of Rob and Barbara Powell who made us most welcome as always. About 20 members turned-up for a wonderful day of camaraderie and a great variety of music on the various instruments available to play.
Thank you so much Rob and Barbara for sharing your home with us - definitely a day to remember.

Club Night 3rd May 2016

A good night was had by one and all! A lovely autumn evening saw a goodish-size audience enjoy some wonderful music by our talented members in the first-half. After a refreshing cup of tea/coffee we were ready to be enthralled by our guest artist, Jeanette Harding, who came all the way from New Plymouth to give the concert. We are thrilled that Jeanette and husband Jim are also members of our Club. A big thank you as always to the Committee and volunteer kitchen staff for making the evening go so smoothly.
