The Weatherbury Singers are an essential part of our rural community. Our choir brings people of all ages and from across a wide area together, acting as a hub where people can improve their musical ability as well as enhance their physical and mental well-being.

Our goals:

  • Improve physical and mental well-being through music
  • Bring together people of different ages and abilities
  • Entertain the local community by singing in schools, care homes, hospices

How we will achieve our goals

The project will pay for a musical director, a choir accompanist and rehearsal space for the choir for a year.

Where the money will go

The project will keep this vital resource at the heart of our community, provide a focal point for people to gather, socialise and celebrate their love of music and provide a free entertainment resource for all ages, from young to old.

    My Aunty joined a choir in South Wales and it has increased her confidence, and allowed her to get out and meet new people. Good luck for the future.
