Meopham

Singing

The singing group meet from 9.45-11.45 on the first and third Tuesday of the month at the 'Tin Tabernacle' in Sole Street.

We are an informal group who enjoy singing together. We like to challenge ourselves and keep adding new songs to our repertoire.

As well as our regular meetings we also enjoy performing for local groups and are always willing to consider new requests.

If anyone wishes to join, then please click the Bluebird symbol (right) to e-mail Anne-Marie, our group contact.

2019 Season

We kicked off our 2019 season with a visit to the Chestnuts in Meopham. We had a lovely reception from staff and residents many of whom joined in with our songs.

After our meeting on Tuesday 5th March we'll be going for our postponed Christmas Lunch to the See Ho in Shorne.For more details contact Anne-Marie

In November we joined with other groups to commemorate 100 years since the ending of the First World War singing a trio of songs "Pack up your troubles", "Its a long way to Tipperary" and "Keep the home fires burning".

The year ended with 2 Christmas gigs. The first on Monday 26th November, to the Parkinson Group in Gravesend, who again treated us to some lovely cakes.
On 4th December we were back with the Alzheimer's Group at St John's Church in Meopham.
Our Christmas meal will take place in in the new year so watch this space.

2017 Season
During the period since the singing group started when U3A Meopham began, a few members dropped out, and new people came in, but we seem to have a continuing membership of 15-16.
As before, we are all women, a very friendly and informal group, but would enthusiastically welcome any male members who might feel they could be interested.

We still enjoy singing popular songs, old and not-so-old, and we have also attracted the interest of the guitar group, with whom we have performed on a few occasions. We sang at several venues prior to Christmas at various care homes and memory groups, also the Parkinson's Group in Chalk. We are sometimes (although not always) offered refreshments, which are much appreciated. This week we sang again for the Monday Club at Sole Street, and were again rewarded with tea, cakes and biscuits

At long last we have the possibility of a pianist, which has yet to be discussed.
