BATLEY’S new evening ‘Singing For Fun’ group got off to a flying start.

The group has been joined by a small but enthusiastic group of newcomers and now they are looking to recruit additional singers to build up the group’s membership as quickly as possible.

The group – meeting every Wednesday from 7-9pm at St Mary’s Social Club in Melton Street – is a spin-off from the club’s highly successful afternoon group which now numbers almost 40, with average attendance in the high twenties.

Organiser and club secretary Denis Walsh said: “We have been approached over the past few years by numerous people who would have liked to join us, but were prevented from doing so by having to work during daytime hours.

“This new evening group is specially for them – and, of course, anyone else who wishes to come along. Singing For Fun is a great way to wind down at the end of the day.”
