Well done to all our new arrivals this week, and to our existing members for your patience, hopefully it was not too overwhelming. We learned a valuable lesson this week, and that is we are now going to encourage people joining for the first time to come for an induction session before joining the group to ease them in and bring them up to speed so we can continuously move forward. We are still learning every week what works best.

We are very nearly at capacity. We have 3 new members who are joining in September but after that we will close the group to newcomers so we can all work together towards a Christmas concert.

From next week we will be looking at Christmas carols. It may seem early but I always start Christmas carols this early so that they are well learned in time for Christmas.

Thank you all for your patience, next week should be a little less chaotic.
