Enjoying Music has been badly hit by lockdown with the absence of live concerts and recitals both in concert halls such as The Bridgewater Hall but also in local churches or schools such as Altrincham Girls Grammar. We have continued to keep in touch via email by sharing links to interesting programmes on the radio or television or on YouTube. Each person can then choose when and where to access the music but this method of mailing often opens up a little email chat to keep up to date with individual members who have become friends through the group, particularly those of us who live alone and have then had a good chat on the phone or even met up for a 1:1 walk.
About half the year the group meets at members houses in turn and for about half of the year go on visits out. The meetings in peoples' houses tend to be in the second half of the year so hopefully we can restart with those subject to social distancing rules not putting a host under pressure.
We are a group of 10 and, given that we meet in members houses and the new spacing requirements for Covid adherence we have no room for new members at the moment.
