The Singing Group is for anyone who enjoys singing. We are a dementia friendly singing group, this means we all take special care to include people living with dementia in the group. There are no auditions, rehearsals or performances, it is all about the pleasure of singing favourite songs …. As the group grows so will our list of your favourite songs too. We especially welcome people who mainly sing in the bath or the car to come and enjoy making a joyful sound. We are trained volunteers who aim to enhance the lives of people with dementia, their carers and friends by introducing them to group singing and its many benefits.
We usually sing monthly at Bankfoot Church Centre on a Thursday from 11-12, look out for the next date advertised.
The church cafe is open weekdays 9.30-1.30pm if you fancy a coffee before singing or would like to join us for lunch or refreshments afterwards. There is no charge for the singing group, our normal cafe prices would apply for those joining us for something there.
If you would like to sing in a group, or would like to volunteer to help out, please get in touch with Fiona at Bankfoot Church Centre 01738 788017.
Due to Coronavirus COVID-19 we are not singing together in a group, but we are still singing. In particular we recommend these excellent Precious memories hymn videos.
The next singing groups will be January 23rd, February 27th and March 19th 2020.
