The photograph shows Stephen Bell, together with the Mayor of Taunton Deane, Cllr. Catherine Herbert and her Consort, after an audience of over 90 had enjoyed the regular Lunchtime Concert on 13th July.

Stephen gave an Organ Recital entitled 'In the Company of Bach, Franck and Peteers'.



The June monthly concert saw 85 people come to enjoy musical performances from local students from Richard Huish College. The collection raised £359.50 which will be shared with Open Door and and St John's.
