As mentioned earlier in the week, we have just spent a small fortune replacing missing catering equipment, in fact our new blue trays were only delivered on Tuesday. Imagine then our shock to find three of the new trays already stored in the GP along with several dozen glasses and plates!
Pembroke Chapel Choir is made up of an equal mix of graduates and undergraduates, largely from Pembroke, but with a welcome intake from other Colleges. The main service is Evensong on Sundays with occasional other services such as the Sung Eucharist each Term. Commitment to the Choir is kept at a minimum with just one practice on Wednesday evenings and another on Sunday afternoon before Evensong. The standard is nevertheless high (sight-reading skills essential), lifting up the worship of the congregation.
On Saturday we played host to a special Honourary Fellows day at Pembroke. The culinary highlight of the day was a lunch served on high table. It would be rude to name names, but suffice to say, there were enough Knights present to form a Round Table!
