The Hoath Village Singers

Singing relieves stress, stimulates the brain, is very relaxing and is great fun
so come and join us!

We enjoy group singing and good company.

Meeting Wednesday evenings 7.30 – 9.30pm, giving vent to our lungs singing pop, gospel, standards and songs from the shows. Doing our best to stay in tune while guided patiently by someone who understands music.

Great fun, great company, it really is an ideas way to relax. Tea, coffee, biscuits, a giggle, a song, a chat…what could be better?!

Go on, give it a try.

Dog owners and walkers in Hoath

There have been a number of reports of people failing to clean up after their dogs. To have dogs fouling the streets is unpleasant, unhygienic and unlawful. Please have some consideration for your neighbours and clean up after your dog.

Many thanks.
