No gain without pain - Rejuvenation work at Golden Hill Park
From: 31 October 2017 to: 03 November 2017
Golden Hill Park

One Trafford (Amey) in conjunction with the Friends of Golden Hill Park and support from Urmston in Bloom are embarking on a week of rejuvenation work at the Park from the beginning of November.

This work will involve the necessary removal of tired overgrown old shrubs under mature trees and self-seeded samplings at the corner of Moorside Road and Crofts Bank Road. This area will then be rejuvenated with the planting of 100’s of bulbs which will flower in succession to give months of colour.  The overall objective is to open and enhance the view from within the park and the roadside, whilst increasing the safety of the public.  Any salvaged plants will potentially be reused within Urmston.  However, rest assured no mature healthy trees will be removed.

Reflections, commissioned by UCS for their 75th anniversary in 2016, was composed by their accompanist Gareth Curtis. It consists of four movements loosely based on extracts from the Mass and will be conducted by Urmston Choral’s Musical Director, Julie Parker, with the piano duet accompaniment played by Sale Choral Society’s Musical Director, Russell Medley, and their Deputy Musical Director, Richard Brocklehurst.

The titles of four movements are ‘Out of the Depths’, ‘Vision’, ‘Song’ and ‘Dismissal’ and the composition lasts about 45 minutes.   The remainder of the concert will be devoted to ‘Dona Nobis Pacem’ written by Vaughan Williams which will be performed by the 60-strong Sale Choral Society, under Russell Medley, with soloists Helen Lacey (soprano) and Thomas Hopkinson (bass). 

Said Joan Ball, Chair of Sale Choral: “This musical collaboration came about by a chance meeting between Gareth and me when we discussed his composition of ‘Reflections’.  Sale Choral jumped at the chance to perform this work and were even more delighted when some members of Urmston Choral agreed to join us for the performance.”

Tickets cost  £10 with no charge for children.  They are available from Christine, Tel: 0791 3369823, any Sale Choral member or at the door.  For further information, please go to salechoralsoc@gmail.com.
