  • Singing Group

    Hello everyone.

    As you read in the last Newsletter your group is hoping to set up a singing group. I have been asked to run this and am very much looking forward to it. As this is a new venture, I would love it if anyone interested would come to an inaugural meeting to talk about when and how often we would like to meet and of course what songs we want to sing.

    Sue has kindly booked the Stratton Suite at
    Grange Leisure, Grange Drive, Swindon SN3 4JY
    on Friday 27th Jan 2023 at 10am.

    I hope you can come to the meeting but if not please let me know if you are interested so I can add you to the list!!
