THIRTEEN members of Powick Ramblers braved the mud last Wednesday for a five-mile walk from The Talbot at Kempsey on parts of the Severn Way and Three Choirs Way.

Next week’s walk is on Thursday at 10am, meeting at Home Base car park in Kidderminster (post code DY10 1XS).

The five-mile walk will be be led by Gill (01562 742820).

A Shindig concert takes place in Powick Parish Hall on Saturday, November 10, when Ross Couper and Tom Oakes from Scotland will be playing fast and furious Celtic folk music on fiddle and guitar.

The event starts at 8pm and tickets are £8 from Jim Allsopp (01905 830746) and Roger Gurney (01905 830756).

Last Saturday evening Powick Parish Community Choir wowed the audience at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Prom held in the hall.

Tom Wells, musical director, had arranged for Powick Strings, led by Richard Lane, to accompany the choir and for Charles Pavey to accompany on piano.

A varied repertoire of songs by the choir reflected a promenade concert with patriotic songs.

There were solos by Sally Kidd and special guest Jenny Newton. Jake Brooks gave a performance on guitar with Charles on piano.

On Friday, November 9, Powick Primary school holds a fireworks night; gates open at 6pm with the display at 7pm.

There will be a pig roast, bar and children’s games.

Family tickets cost £15.
