Numbers at the Wednesday Group, and for a good many other clubs and groups, have been low through the pandemic. Recently though, new people have begun to join and the Wednesday Group has also received numerous telephone enquiries.
As regulars know, this memory group does a lot of things that involve music. They have a fantastic pianist, Frank, who visits once a fortnight. He is very popular and plays medleys of all the old favourites with a few surprise items woven in here and there. Probably the tune he plays most often is ‘Happy Birthday’ because there is often one to be celebrated. It was Frank’s turn to be surprised recently when he found the cake and candles and the song he was playing were for his own birthday!
Another firm favourite is singer Jessica Brett. She comes equipped with ribbons, tambourines, rattles and any number of other instruments as well as loads of enthusiasm! She soon has members on their feet singing, dancing and twirling flags with her. Some members have joined Jessica’s fortnightly ‘Let’s Sing’ sessions on Thursday afternoons at The Well too.
If you enjoy music, meeting other people and having a good time, you couldn’t do better than try out the Wednesday Group or Jessica’s ‘Let’s Sing’ group. You’ll get a warm welcome whichever group you try.
