Beacon of Harmony Scroll

Beacon of Harmony event 9/9/16

The Beacon of Harmony Scroll arrived safely in Blackpool courtesy of our visitors from Mersey Harmony. The evening was electric in more than one sense of the word, as Mersey Harmony’s coach navigated the Illuminations traffic.

Around 28 ladies filed into Marton Institute to join us at our wonderful LABBS get together event. We welcomed each other like old friends. It was plain to see what a great bunch of ladies Mersey Harmony and Soundwaves are.

The hall was decorated with banners and bunting and on arrival everyone they remarked on how nice our venue looked.

After speeches and welcoming our Mayor and Mayoress, the scroll was signed by Christine Fitton the head of our music team at Soundwaves and Jane White – Soundwaves P.R.O.

Photographs were taken by Jane our P.R.O and our marvellous cake, made for us by local firm Cake Tin Delights was cut.

There was thunderous applause when the Mayor addressed everyone and was presented with a lovely posy of flowers.

Everyone settled down to be entertained firstly by Soundwaves singing 59th Bridge Street, One Fine Day and Lean on Me.

The bar area was in full flow as Mersey Harmony then entertained the room with some of their wonderful songs such as Moon River.

As time flew by our special LABBS quiz questions were handed out and over the drinking and chattering the groups of 5 were pondering about the answers. As the answers of the Quiz were read out, everyone congratulated each other on how good the Quiz had been.

As the fish and chips arrived from “The Cottage” everyone tucked in and savoured every last chip!

After our supper there was just time for me to hand round the magnet keepsakes I had made for the evening

Before we knew it the evening was over at The Marton Institute and it was with a warm heart and a cheerful grin we bid farewell and waved off our fellow Barbershoppers Mersey Harmony.
