We are a small group made up of carers in the South Gloucestershire area. We meet once a week, in Kingswood (Wednesdays at Kingswood Community Centre 1-3pm) and Yate (Tuesdays at the Parish Hall 10.30am-12.30pm) alernately. We sing a range of rounds, vocal exercises and short pieces, and perform occasionally, often teaming up with Bitton Community Choir. The choir is open to anyone who is a carer in South Gloucestershire, and is a laid back, friendly environment.
