I am exploring the possibility of starting a social singing group for children aged 7 to 16, probably meeting on a Saturday morning. This would not be a choir as such, rather with singing for fun being the main focus, although there would obviously be a hope that, as time goes by, the standard would develop.
Although the group would meet at the chapel, there would be no aspirations to turn it into a church choir, although it might be hoped that eventually performance standard might be reached.
The reason for the younger age limit is that this is an age at which most children have reached a reasonable level of reading ability, making it easier to teach songs to them.
Obviously, I need to know whether there is any interest before pursuing the idea any further, so would be pleased to hear from any parents whose children might be interested. Contact preferably by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone (01328 700978).
If the project goes ahead I will also be looking for adults willing to act as chaperones to conform with safeguarding regulations. This will entail undergoing a CRB check.
