High Sheriff's and perfect voices......

Had an exceptional day in Pickwicks. Today was the second day of the Wells Cathedral School Music Festival - which is being held in the cafe. We were treated to the delights of some jazz songs.

They all had fantastic voices, which filled the whole cafe. At one point there was standing room only as so many people came in to listen.

During this morning, before the concert, I attended a meeting at the Cathedral Offices to discuss plans for the installation of the new High Sheriff of Somerset.

This is an ancient role, dedicated to law enforcement in the counties. The service, held in the Cathedral, is full of invited guests from the courts, legal service, armed forces, civic agencies and many other backgrounds. So it important that everyone gets the right seating in the right order for this to happen we are all to be given coloured tickets..........!!!!!

It'll be sad to see the current High Sheriff (Brig. Alistair Fife) go as both he and his wife Dee have become good friends. Never mind - like the role as Mayor, it only lasts one year!

Later in the afternoon, I had a checkup at the dentist.....was over in minutes - phew!!

p.s. Heard quote of the year (2007) today - but can't print it as this space!!
