The launch of the monthly ‘Goldies’ fun Sing&Smile sessions at the John Betjeman Centre in Wadebridge attracted over 50 people on Monday (September 11).
From small beginnings 10 years ago in the Bath and Bristol area the Goldies charity has made quite remarkable progress in recent years. The founder is Grenville Jones, who is based in Bath. He led the first sessions himself with Wadebridge-based Emma Peck who will lead the charity forward in the months and years ahead.
“Our number of daytime singing sessions is now approaching 200 with 50 freelance session leaders across the South West up to Yorkshire and across the Midlands to East Anglia. Goldies Cymru with the support of the Big Lottery Fund in Wales is also developing across Mid and West Wales.
“It was great to see so many people here and Emma is going to be a brilliant leader. She is looking forward to seeing everyone again on Monday October 9 from 12.00noon until 1.30pm at the John Betjeman Centre.”
