Take a break and enjoy some Christmas cheer this November

IT IS that time of year again, the weather is warming up and Christmas is just around the corner.

A Cappella Bay Singers marketing manger Helen Van Herk said she has just the thing for those needing a break from the Christmas stress.

"Come and spend an afternoon of fun with the A Cappella Bay Singers," she said.

"ACB singers are a show chorus of women singers who perform exciting musical arrangements in close four-part harmony, without musical backing.

"We are part of Sweet Adelines International, one of the largest women's music organisations in the world with 24,000 members in 14 countries all over the world.

"A Cappella Bay Singers are holding a Christmas tombola at the CWA Hall, Pulgul St, Urangan, on Saturday, November 18, starting promptly at 1.30pm.

"There are over 200 great prizes to be won, along with raffles and a lucky door prize and afternoon tea will be provided."

Ms Van Herk said they would perform for many community organisations during December before taking a Christmas break, with rehearsals starting late January next year.
