Bountagu’s 50+ group often trial new projects to build on the coffee mornings, expand the activities offered and reach some more people. During 2019, one of these was a monthly community choir, held on Wednesday afternoons and designed to build more cross-generational connections.
Bountagu Community Choir ran during 2019-20, welcoming all ages on the second Wednesday of each month. No need to book. The afternoon time slot was designed to finish in time for people looking after school-age children. Bountagu subsidised the full costs of the choir master and venue hire, in order to keep the activity free for participants. Donations were welcomed and added to the general 50+ group’s funds.
