Saturday September 26th 2.00pm-4.30pm
A charity that brings songs and smiles to older people across Swindon will be holding a free admission celebration event on Saturday afternoon September 26. The venue is Holy Trinity Church Hall, Shaw Village Centre, Ramleaze Drive, Shaw from 2.00pm until 4.30pm.
“Goldies,” as it is fondly known, was started by music man Grenville Jones eight years ago. Grenville hails from Swindon but moved to Bath in the early 1970s. He is one of the leading choir conductors in the West of England and launched his charity Golden-Oldies to brighten the lives of older vulnerable people.
From four initial sessions in and around Bath in 2008 taken by himself there are now over 130 singing and activity sessions across England and Wales. Swindon Borough Council have supported Goldies in the town from the onset and the open BIG SING on September 26 will bring together folk who attend the sessions from across Swindon.
Gayle Bryon leads sessions in the town, she said:
“We are delighted that the Thamesdown Ladies Choir, children from Brook Field Primary School and Westlea Primary School will be providing the entertainment. There will of course be a mass Goldies sing-along and we are delighted that this will be taken by our founder Grenville Jones.”
Swindon MP Robert Buckland will be adding his voice to proceedings and transport costs for the day have been supported by Swindon Lions Club.
