Singing for fun

This is a new group starting meeting in September. It will be a very relaxed group—no audition or complicated harmonies, just some fun singing. Members are choosing the songs we sing.

We will be meeting on the first and third Fridays of each month from 10:30 to 12 noon in St Mark’s Church Hall, Station Road.
