Singers and Shakers!

One of our residents family members contacted us about a group they are part of and wondered if they could provide a concert for the residents.

The group is part of the U3A or University of the Third Age – which is an organisation for Retired and semi-retired people who come together and learn together.

This particular group is known as the Singers & Shakers – they meet on the last Thursday of every month and sing Folk &Traditional songs, Calypsos and Sea Shanties. For more information about them please visit their website:

The residents & staff really enjoyed the variety of songs and also ‘shaking’ various different instruments such as maracas etc – it was a lovely afternoon and one that we hope to repeat again.

A huge thank you to the Singers & Shakers group who gave up their time to entertain for us and to the residents who joined in! Not forgetting the Yummy doughnuts we all enjoyed after the performance!IMG_1620 IMG_1672 IMG_1684 IMG_1689 IMG_1696
