Recent reports say that Neuroscience proves that group
singing makes us happier, healthier, smarter and more
creative. Every time you sing, you fire up the right temporal
lobe of your brain, and release endorphins including
oxytocin which result in a feeling of wellbeing. So get
A big thank you to everyone who came and helped with the Singalong. It was a great night full of singing, nibbles, drinks and the making of paper chains, lanterns and snowflakes. Of course, there was a visit from Santa and the Music Group performed the best I have ever heard them. Thank you to Joyce and Terry for the music and to Sue for her help in putting out the tables and laying up. Also, a big thank you to John for doing the door, providing and doing the raffle, doing refreshments and anything else asked of him (within reason of course!) everyone went home happy and full of Christmas spirit, it really was a great night. If you missed it where were you but we would have struggled to fit you in.
They say that Music & Singing is really good for your well being, singing in a group even better. You can come to the music group on a dull Thursday morning feeling down, have a good sing, open your lungs and sing your heart out with really friendly people, have a coffee/tea and a chat and go home feeling happier and brighter. It gives you that ‘Feel Good Factor’. It’s great when our group has rehearsed a song for a while and it suddenly all comes together and sounds great, (well we think it does).
So, if you would like to join us come along on a Thursday morning 10am—12pm, you will be made very welcome.
Music Group– Music group’s last session will be Thursday 20th December at St Paul’s Church, 2.00pm and will reopen on Thursday 10th January 2019
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

The Lantern Parade is attended by children from local schools and is a lovely start to Christmas celebrations.
The Phoenix Music group concert at St Paul’s Church on Saturday 26th August 2017 proved to be a great success. They performed to a full house and would like to thank all those who attended. They raised a brilliant £414, which is shared between St Paul’s Church and the ‘Live at Home’, scheme.
A special thank you to Bob Bell who added an accompanying slide show, synchronised to the songs. We also thank the the ladies who served the refreshments and all those who helped set up the venue before and clear up after the show.

During 2016, the Music Group had a happy friendly year, with our most successful, Songs Of Great Britain concert at St Paul’s Methodist Church Rugeley, after which there were some encouraging comments. This was followed in November by the Lantern Parade, which was well attended and the group played their part in making the evening an overall success.
In December we were invited to sing carols & Christmas songs in costa Coffee Rugeley & Hednesford. We were well received by both staff & customers at both venues who joined in with us. The total sum of £951.38 was collected for the MacMillan Hospice.
The culmination of the year by the group was in supporting Sandra at the Christmas Sing-Along at Sheepfair. This was a happy, relaxed fun night.
Our thanks go to the group members, for all the hard work they put into make the group a success.
