On Sunday, 17th July, SDRS celebrated our 70th Anniversary in style. Our Joint Chairmen, Lewis Miller and Della Carr welcomed everyone and explained how the afternoon would go. The audience were treated to a sumptuous lunch, followed by entertainment from the Choral Society, who sang medleys from The Phantom of the Opera, and West Side Story to name a couple. Then everyone enjoyed a recital of classical and light music by Roni Rothwell on the cello and Jane Compton on the keyboard. Time for tea and delicious cakes and biscuits. Then, for something a bit different. Maurice Caplin sang a variety of Elvis songs and David Perry who sang about his favourite city, San Francisco plus some more great tunes. Interspersed with the entertainment, were speakers who related who spoke about their experiences at SDRS from the past and present. Sandra Wiseman told us about her time at the Hebrew Classes and Della Carr about how welcome she had felt on joining the Shul a few years' ago.
A great afternoon was had by all and we even finished on time!
