The Ukulele group busked in King Street on Saturday 9th December, and collected for Support4Sight. It was freezing cold and it’s hard to play with frozen fingers, but we added to the general happy Christmas spirit in the town. Mary Curtis
Group Co-ordinator: Mary Curtis – 01799 524 784 – firstname.lastname@example.org
We meet from 10.00 – 12.00 noon on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at St Paul’s Mission Room, Tye Green, Wimbish, CB10 2XE
This is a new group and already we have 17 members and beginners with no experience are welcome. Please contact Mary Curtis if interested.
Learning a new instrument has been proved to be an excellent way of stimulating the brain and making new neural pathways thus slowing its decline (we can but hope!!), increases concentration, improves memory and co ordination … And it’s great fun!
The ukulele is small, portable, cheap to buy (eg Argos about £20), and relatively easy to play. We will learn basic chords together and sing along with the playing. It’s an accompaniment instrument not a solo virtuoso one.
