After such a long time, when we have been unable to meet due to Covid restrictions, we are now getting together every Tuesday and enjoying the pleasure of hearing each other sing in harmony.
From May 2020 until July 2021, a number of members who were equipped with the appropriate technology had been keeping our voices in trim with Zoom sessions, every week. Whilst it was strange looking at our friends on a screen of some sort, it did maintain our sense of camararderie. Most importantly our “meetings” allowed us to maintain our entity as a choir whilst waiting for normal life to return..
We feel fortunate to have started up with roughly the same number of members as pre-pandemic though some have left through Covid related issues, recovering from surgery or other personal reasons. We are delighted to welcome four new members very recently.
We have been unable to return to our long term rehearsal venue - the Pilkington Family Trust Pensioner Centre and have had to find a new “home”. After an extensive search we are happy to have found the Alexandra Suite within Willowbrook Hospice’s “Living Well” Centre.This is a modern, bright, airy facility which is proving very popular with members. It is also pleasing to know that in hiring the room, we are supporting Willowbrook’s fund raising activities.
