THE 60th anniversary of Callington Brotherhood was celebrated earlier this month with a thanksgiving service at the Methodist Church. Minister Howard Curnow conducted the service, and guest soloist Bronwen Davies of Saltash gave a selection of pieces, accompanied by Kenneth Pethick on the piano. The guest speaker was the Rev John Taylor, the general secretary of the Brotherhood and Sisterhood movement. Deputy portreeve Denise Winfindale read a lesson, and Russell Deacon read the names of members recorded in the memorial book. Barry Higgins was organist for the hymns, which concluded with 'To God be the Glory'. The freewill offering, amounting to £135, was donated to Mullers Home for Children at Bristol. The celebrations continued in the evening with a grand concert given by the Holman Climax Male Voice Choir, accompanied by Agnes Jane and working with musical director Roger Wills. The church enjoyed a selection of music by this choir, with soloists Sydney Mitchell and Billy Hancock, together with the Trelawney Quartet. Their guest artist was Jonathan Delbridge who gave solos on piano and organ. BBC Spotlight's Justin Leigh was the chairman and a vote of thanks was given by Kevin Veal. The £1,000 raised by the concert was donated by to the Boscastle Flood Disaster Appeal.
