Desert Island Discs - October 2012

We were very much looking forward to this year's Desert Island Discs. Our usual master of ceremonies was not available so Paul Simkin stepped into the breech.

Our castaway was Mavis Harvey, a local lady who has led a very full and interesting life!

The format drifted away slightly from the BBC one, and the evening was an enjoyable success.

Mavis brought along many items of memorabilia from her past, including her wedding dress, and the outfit her mother wore when reading at Lichfield Cathedral on the occasion of the Queen Mother's 100th birthday (her mother being 103 at the time!).

Her choice of music was ecclectic, and all the more enjoyable for that. Her final choice was Land of Hope and Glory, to which we all sang along.

Thanks to all who brought Bring & Share items for supper - very tasty!
