During term times, the sessions are led by Ginette from 2pm until around 4:30 and usually practice for our next concert with a refreshment break to give the fingers a rest and a chance to chat.

   Ginette - our leader Ginette

As our numbers swelled and experience grew, it became obvious that the membership would have differing levels of skills and a beginners class was formed for any new member or those who have been with us a while that wanted the extra practice. Led by Heather the lesson starts at 1:15pm before everyone gets together for the main session.

One of the advantages of the Ukulele is that whatever level of experience you have you can join in, either by strumming or playing the individual notes and Ginette's choice of music ensures that everyone can be included in these sessions.

We are a friendly and sociable bunch.

The group is NOT taking new members at present as the register of members is now full. For Health and Safety reasons we are unable to increase our numbers further, but if you are interested in joining us in the future then contact us and we will add you to the reserve list and should anyone drop out we will contact you as soon as practical.
