As we awoke this morning, we were greeted by the, yet again, dull, dreary Preston-like weather.  However, the early morning walkers were still raring to go.  After another delicious and filling breakfast, as well as the routine room checks and bank, we headed out to our first rehearsal of the day at St Thomas’s whilst looking forward to what the rest of the day had it store.

Once the first half of the rehearsal, which had been successful, was complete, the wonderful volunteers from St Thomas’s Church yet again ran a tuck shop for the boys to buy yet more sweets!  When the second half was over, the boys ventured into town for free time. Lunch followed and we Choristers were then swiftly transported to St George’s Church to complete our afternoon rehearsal.

Unfortunately, due to the poor weather we mentioned, we were unable to go ahead with our scheduled visit to Peel Beach.  Fortunately, to the delight of us all, we returned to the swimming baths.  After one and a half hours of swimming, we returned to the hotel to change into church clothes to eat dinner where the highlight of the meal was fish and chips!  Next, we were off to St George’s where we led Evensong with readings from Harry Jones and Ben Hodson which were both read which such confidence and skill.  The prayers were offered beautifully by James Bettess, James Cross, Josh Dryland, Finley Lawrenson and Oliver Turberfield.  After refreshments which very kindly provided by the congregation of
St George’s Church, we returned to the Hotel for much needed rest whilst at the same time looking forward to all that tomorrow will hold.
