Volunteer Mary writes: CGN Melodics singing group was started by our musical director, Leah Cavanagh, 10 years ago, and has been meeting weekly ever since. We meet every Thursday morning after Coffee Morning and sing from 11.45 – 1.00p.m.  There are usually about 12 of us there, and we sometimes go for lunch afterwards together.

We start with an amusing warm up to relax us, which is always a bit of fun, and then sing a wide variety of songs accompanied by Leah on the piano. We perform occasionally at CGN Coffee Morning or at local retirement homes, which gives us a great buzz when we see the residents tapping their toes and joining in.

There has been a lot in the press recently about the therapeutic effects of singing.  I always feel happier after a good sing.

Everyone can sing so do come down and join
