Your Local Community Choir is going to start meeting in St. John’s Haydon Wick every Thursday from 1pm to 3pm. It will be led by Sarah Summers.

This is not a church initiative. The choir is simply a tenant of the PCC. But we are very happy to make the building available to the local community for this venture. Like the Craft Club in last week’s bulletin, the choir provides an opportunity for people to meet others doing something they all like.

There is no charge for your fist visit, so come along and try it for free. The good news is that you don’t have to pass a musical test to join the choir—there are no auditions! Just turn up and join in

GRENVILLE JONES – Founder and Musical Director

The Good Afternoon Choir was started by Grenville Jones in May 2009 with the very first Bath Good Afternoon Choir. Over the years that followed, more Good Afternoon Choirs were introduced
and now there are over 20 across the West Country with more planned for later this year.

He has appeared on BBC’s Children in Need and has raised thousands of pounds for various charities across the UK in the last 25 years.

Grenville was born in Purton and Singing was always part of his Methodist upbringing. He used to have a tenor voice but says that many years of choir conducting have strained his voice to a poor bass.

Dee is not an official representative of the organisation—but she is very enthusiastic about the choir and would be happy to answer any questions anyone might have. Enjoy!
