Obituary – Karl Kerslake, Bottom Base
It is with great regret that the choir have learned of the death of Karl Kerslake at the early age of 56.
Karl died from a non Covid related illness early on the morning of the 27th July 2021.
He joined the choir in February 2020 and was very enthusiastic for the short time he was with us prior to lockdown.
Karl daughter is the partner of Chris (Ben) Elwell, Top Tenor.
Allison, Karl’s wife, is the sister of Lawrence Hopkins.
Our condolences go out to Allison and all the family.
CORONAVIRUS (COVID – 19)
It is with great regret that the choir have decided to postpone all engagements and cancel practice until further notice with immediate effect.
Our apologies go out to all our followers but we hope that you will understand, bearing in mind the age profile of the choristers, that this is the wisest course of action in the current circumstances.
All the boys and the musical team wish you all the best in the days to come and we hope to resume normal service as soon as the situation allows.
Following discussions by the officers, it is clear that the “Lockdown Period” will be extended for a further period, and therefore the decision to restart activities will be delayed indefinitely.
