Song Sharing

Song Sharing is a U3A group for members who bring along songs, nursery rhymes, singing games, folk songs, simple rounds and so on, to share with everyone. Song Sharing takes place monthly in Crediton Library on Wednesday afternoons, when the library is shut so we have the sunny children’s space to ourselves. All U3A members are very welcome. You don't have to be a good singer because we're not a choir; we're just sharing songs and memories. There is a small charge for the session. Please contact group organiser Laura Conyngham 01363 773000 for more information.
