Barrie and Jean recognised in local award

Reading Operatic Society has long-appreciated the many ways that Jean Theobald and our president, Barrie Theobald, have tirelessly worked on its behalf over many years. We were delighted to learn they had been nominated to receive the Services to Earley Award from Earley Town Council in recognition of their varied contributions to the Earley community.

They were each presented with certificates and plaques by the Mayor of Earley on 20 May 2015 to mark their efforts.   The presentation was duly reported on the third page of the local press, accompanied by a photograph, and Jean was heard to say that she can finally claim to be a Page 3 Girl!   The annual ROS fund-raising day in their garden on 23 May raised over £500 for the Society.
