Those who knew KenHughes and his tremendous contribution to music and to our choir will understand our desire to keep his name alive in our collective memory.
Late last year Alan Hibbert, our long standing Secretary announced his decision to retire. It was therefore decided to create an award, “The Ken Hughes Order of Merit”. In a brief ceremony at Christmas Alan was given life long membership and became the first recipient of the Order. We wish him well and hope to keep in close touch with him over the coming years.
