Thursday, February 5, 2015
Voices of all ages will ring out on Wednesday February 25 at Holy Trinity Primary School in Yeovil when the school will be hosting a World War One Heritage Day in partnership with the Goldies sing and smile Charity.
Goldies brings together older people across Southern England and Wales through its organised fun daytime singing and activity sessions. Started by Bath music man Grenville Jones seven years ago it has grown from the four original sessions taken by Grenville to over 10,000 sessions at 100 venues led by35 dedicated session leaders. For many, attending Goldies is the only time that some get to meet and enjoy the company of others.
The Goldies schools inter-generational programme encourages schools to open their doors to the older folk in their community and on Wednesday February 25 older people who attend the Goldies session at Milford Hall will be the guests of the school.
Also attending will be the Mayor of Yeovil Cllr Mike Lock and the Mayoress.
“Holy Trinity Primary School are putting on a fantastic day for our Goldies and are also inviting other local people. There will be lots of singing and the children will also be showing the older folk their World War One projects that they have been working on in recent weeks.
“Everyone will enjoy lunch provided by the school and the day will end with a good old fashioned sing-along of those World War One favourites led by myself.
“It’s going to be a great day, I am really looking forward to it.”
