The Sun Shines on St Hubert’s for the Musical Picnic

The sun shone and the skies were blue for the Musical Picnic held against the backdrop of St Hubert’s, ‘the little church in the field’. Some 175 picnickers attended the event on Saturday 14th August, organised by the Idsworth Church Friends Trust, their first such event since the easing of the Covid lockdown. The event, conceived by trustee Ann Hartley, was a Musical Picnic for families and friends of all ages. ‘We wanted to stage an event where people could come with friends and family but be able to socially distance and enjoy their picnics whilst listening to some jazz and some folk music.’ Trumpeter, Colin Berry, provided some great jazz music to get the toes tapping whilst the Driftwood Troubadours, Gordon Charlesworth and Dave Mitchell, sang a range of their own folk songs.  ‘St Hubert’s, the little church on the hill’ proved an especially popular rendition. The evening was rated a great success. ‘How lovely to be out and about enjoying ourselves once again’, remarked one contented member of the audience as the sun set over the Idsworth Valley.
