Twenty-seven members and friends of the GOA enjoyed the Annual Dinner in the Visitor Centre Hall at Tewkesbury Abbey on Saturday September 19th

After sherry and a very tasty meal provided by Home Flair Catering of Bishop’s Cleeve, our Guest of Honour was Dr. Roy Massey MBE, D.Mus, FRCO, who is the Organist Emeritus of Hereford Cathedral.

In a humourous speech, Dr Massey enthralled those present by recounting many anecdotes of his long and successful musical life.

It was a great evening.
