The John Betjeman Centre in Wadebridge was bursting with song and laughter with the return of the Goldies UK Sessions.

Generously supported by The Link, local charity Concern Wadebridge is hosting 8 Goldies Sessions over the rest of the year.

The first was on 4th August and was attend by over a dozen singers belting out tunes from the 50’s onwards and some even got up and danced by the end!

Concern Wadebridge manager Emma Burt said: “What a wonderful atmosphere – even I couldn’t help but join in! There was clapping and dancing and lots and lots of laughter. It’s been a tough few years and this was truly delightful.”
Emma Peck from Goldies UK added: “It is fantastic to be back - singing is so good for you. Sometimes people come in looking a bit pale and by the end they are full of colour and feeling so much better.”

One of the attendees Sue Moore said: “I only lost my husband recently and this has been really good therapy. I have a wonderful family and support but it has been great to come out with my friends and we have had a great time – we can’t wait until the next one!”

The sessions include an hour of singing, followed by a cuppa and chat. Entry is by donation.

The next sessions are open to everyone and are at 2pm on Thursdays: 1st September, 15th September, 6th October, 3rd November, 17th November, 1st December and 15th December.
