It’s not only speech that’s silver

IT’S not only the school term that is starting again, as a local singing group resumes sessions.

The Morpeth Silver Singers will meet weekly from Tuesday and new members are welcome to join in.

The group, which is part of the 20,000 Voices scheme, is open to anyone over the age of 50 who enjoys singing, or would like to give it a try.

Previous experience is not necessary and members do not have to be able to read music, with the emphasis firmly on fun, sociability and feeling good.

Sessions are held at St James’s Community Centre, from 10.30am to noon, and each one costs £3, paid weekly.
