  • Fancy Singing? Cornwall Community Choir.

    If you fancy singing with some like-minded people then Cornwall Community Choir are opening a brnach in St Columb Minor Church Hall starting on Friday May 24 from 10.30am. Membership is open to all and is just £5 per session. Cornwall Community Choir is a network of daytime community based choirs in Cornwall. The choir started in summer of 2009 and currently has choirs up and running in Penzance, Truro, Helston, Bodmin, Liskeard, Falmouth and a St Ives/Hayle group based at Carbis Bay. The Truro group covers the Truro, Newquay and St Austell areas. Two new choirs started in early 2017 - Bodmin on Friday mornings and Liskeard on Friday afternoons. Do you sing in the bath? Whilst doing the hoovering? Wandering around the golf course? If you have always wanted to sing, but never plucked up enough courage to have a go, here is your opportunity! You don't have to be able to read music and you won't be asked to sing on your own or take an audition! Unlike some choirs which learn everything by rote (and take a long time to do it!) we encourage singers to pick up basic music reading skills. We provide you with music/words and give little useful tips during rehearsals to enable you to learn a little about music reading and pick up a few basic music reading skills! Each area choir has it's own director and a professional accompanist providing a real, live accompaniment! We don't use backtracks or CD's although we do use the occasional mp3/sound files to help with learning music at home!

  • Bold Empathy Head Shave

    Further motivated by the experiences and appeals of Zach Piper and Chrissie Jackson. I am attempting to raise £1,000 minimum to shave my head raising money for the Little Princess Trust and Marie Curie Cancer Support; in empathic support of people with cancer and other conditions resulting in hair loss. The actual 'shave' will take place at 10 Hair Design in Bank Street, Newquay on Saturday 25 May. If you are able to donate - just pop in before then and your contribution will go to support two very worthy causes.
