Members of Cor Bro Ogwr organised a coffee morning with a distinctly maritime and musical flavour recently.

A number of choristers pulled together in Trinity Church, Porthcawl to bring a seaside atmosphere to the event in spite of persistent drizzle. Bunting, striped tablecloths, flower decorations and sailor outfits helped to jolly everyone along.

A number of local shops and businesses were very generous with raffle prizes, as were members of the choir and friends. The bric-a-brac stall was declared the best one ever in terms of variety and quality of items.

A plant stall and a jewellery stall completed the row of bargains.

There was musical entertainment too, when Jim Bartlett, local poet and singer-songwriter, stood up to sing a selection of sea songs and shanties with rousing choruses that had us all joining in, in true hearty fashion.

Even the cakes had a relevant theme – edible musical decorations on delicious cup cakes, baked by Lucy of Golding Girls and Lucy’s Larder.

Many thanks to our choir helpers, who helped raise £372 towards choir funds this year of our 20th anniversary. We are planning more special events to celebrate. Thanks also to those who gave donations and support.

Our next concert, an evening of light music, Songs for Summer will be held in Coleg Y Dderwen, Tondu (CF32 9EL) on Saturday July 21 at 7pm. Tickets £10 at the door, from choir members, or on 01656 653326.
