Eden Wild Goose Community Choir
17th March 2020 Notice
The choir has been great fun and the time will come again to fly.
However in the light of recent Gov.uk guidance
we will have to temporarily suspend our Thursday evening gatherings.
This is a huge disappointment, but our only option.
Our plans for a VE celebration concert on 7th May have been postponed,
however let's keep the date of 11th June in our diary - as it is 12 weeks away -
although we might sound a bit like geese!
If you are able to phone or speak to others
who might not get this message, please do.
Even if they already might know,
it will be good to have reassuring contact with each other.
'We'll meet again'.
Yours Graeme Skinner.
Maybe join with

Eden Wild Goose has launched a community choir,
an exciting new local initiative.
Thursdays at 7.30pm-9pm
in Wetheral Church, CA4 8HA.
The Eden Wild Goose Community Choir is a choir
for all ages and musical abilities with no auditions required.
We are led by the experienced musician Jerry King.
The aims are to enjoy ourselves,
meet new people, build community
and maybe even boost our personal health and well being.
The choir is open to anyone and everyone.
There is a suggested minimum donation of £2.50 per session.
If you would like more information about the choir or Eden Wild Goose
or if you would like to come along for the first time,
