It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Ann Rook. Ann died in hospital over the weekend of July 29th/30th 2017 after a serious chest infection. We send our condolences to her husband, Mick, and all her family, at this very sad time.

Ann was one of our 2 accompanists for well over 30 years. She retired from the choir a few months ago and was enjoying the extra time she had, particularly spending a lot of it with her new Grandson, Patrick. She will be remembered by choir members past and present as an accomplished pianist who always had a smile for everyone at weekly rehearsals and concerts. She rehearsed choir and guest soloists in her own home whenever required without any complaint. In her time with the choir, she toured Germany and the USA, as well as many parts of the UK.

Ann will be missed by many people, including other musical groups that she accompanied over the years. On behalf of everyone, we say thank you, Ann, for all the happy times we spent with you, and the friendship we all had with you.
