A few photos from Carols on The Green

On Thursday 22 December we held our annual Carols on The Green event.

It was a memorable evening with an excellent turnout, a friendly feel, and good weather.

Geoff did a brilliant job leading us through the carols with our PA system in support. (We didn’t manage to get a brass band this year – hopefully we will have one next year).

The mince pies, mulled wine and hot chocolate helped us to keep warm and gave us plenty of energy to hit the high notes.

If you have any photographs you’d like to add to the gallery, please send them through to cpraonline@gmail.com

CPRA Italian Meal 8 December 2022

Last Thursday we had a very successful Italian meal with wonderful food, a quiz, a raffle and some music.

No Italian meal would be complete without some opera and Curzon Park resident Imogen sang two arias for us accompanied by Chester-based pianist John Gough.

We raised £213 raised for the charity SHARE: Supporting Homelessness, Assisting Refugees Everywhere.

Thank you so much to everyone who attended this memorable evening.

Here is an extract of Imogen singing Voice Che Sapete from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro.
