Open Mic, 11th December, 7pm

We shall be celebrating December with an open mic evening at the Garstang Arts Centre. There will be mulled wine, mince pies and plenty of music, not just ukuleles. 
Everyone is welcome to come and play or just to listen.

We are all enjoying our weekly singing, so good to be together again after what has been a very unusual eighteen months. We continue to be cautious given the virus is obviously still around but having the joy of music to share certainly lifts our spirits. 
We have planned our Christmas party in the Art Centre for Monday 13th December at 12.30.p.m. if any of our ladies wish to join us could you please let me know by 6th December for catering purposes.
We will resume our weekly meetings in January on Monday the 3rd 2022. when subscriptions to the Art Centre will be due. Christmas Wishes and the hope of peace and health to all from the Songbirds.

Garstang Floral Art

At the meeting in September June and I explained to members that we wished to step down as leaders of the group. I am writing this in early November and to date no-one has come forward to take over the running of the Floral Art Group. If there is anyone willing to take on the roles of chairperson, secretary or treasurer please contact either June or myself. It is a very friendly group and we would be sorry to have to close it down. Our contact numbers are below.

Book Club

At our November meeting in September we discussed ‘The Black House’ by Peter May. This author was a popular choice with the group although we all agreed that the book had a rather dark side and certainly didn’t make the Isle of Lewis feel very welcoming! However several members of the group are going to continue to read the trilogy!
For our next meeting on the 14th December the recommended book is ‘All the Lonely People’ by Mike Gayle. The theme is loneliness or racism but it is a definitely a feel good book.
In January our recommended book is ‘600 hours of Edward’ by Craig Lancaster
