Pageant News 27 November 2007
On Sunday 25 November we were treated to a most entertaining and
enjoyable evening of 'fun, live music and song' by the acclaimed
Vivace!, Director of Music John Sandford, in Southwater Parish
The evening was organised on behalf of
Pageant by the Southwater Parochial Church Council, most of the hard work being
done by Stephen Chapman, to whom we offer our very grateful thanks.
Our thanks go also to Dominic Newstead, the Vicar of Southwater, and
the team of ladies who helped with the refreshments in the interval
- and of course, to the choir themselves, who were MAGNIFICENT.

we thought. The concert raised £350 for Pageant after paying all
