Things are a little different but Woolwich Singers are back singing and rehearsing!
And what an excellent first session we had with our new MD Eamonn O’Dwyer – it was really almost the real McCoy – to be experienced to believe!
Give it a go this week – it will leave you uplifted and feeling happy!
We are singing on Wednesday, 7pm – 8pm and Eamonn has wonderful music tracks so you really are not alone when you sing!
Here’s the Zoom link which you can use every week:
Topic: Woolwich Singers
Time: This is a recurring meeting – Wednesdays, 7-8pm
Meeting ID: 894 4298 2028
We do hope you will join us.
There is also the opportunity to stay and have a chat for 15 minutes after rehearsal, so you can catch up with friends in the choor, so please stay on afterwards if you can.
PAYING YOUR SUBS
We are so glad to be able to start singing with our new MD, Eamonn. Exciting times!
Our sing-alongs over the summer were important and we felt it was a good use of our resources to fund the sessions, in order for us all to keep in touch with each other. However we now need to focus on making sure that Woolwich Singers remain solvent!
We have, therefore, reintroduced our weekly subs of £3 per week for our Zoom
sessions, starting from 23rd September.
Obviously, as we are not meeting in person, we need to think about payment options and we will try to be as flexible as possible. If you are able to keep a check on your attendance and maybe send a monthly payment, that would be helpful as it reduces the amount of admin. But, of course, weekly payments are fine too.
The options are :
Payments by bank transfer
Account name: WOOLWICH SINGERS
Sort code: 400735
Account number: 01818511
Ref: add your name&date
Payment by Cheque
PLEASE NOTE: if you would like to pay by cheque please make cheques
payable to Woolwich Singers. Please let Wendy know if you wish to pay by
cheque and she will send you the postal address.
Unfortunately, as we’re not able to meet up yet, we can’t hold our usual raffles. This extra income every month allowed us to keep the weekly subs low. If anyone has any ‘socially distanced’ fundraising ideas, please do get in touch. And if anyone wishes to send the odd small donation, the Trustees would be very grateful.
If anyone has any concerns or questions about subs or the finances in general, please let me know and I will do my best to sort them out.
We rehearse every Wednesday 7 – 8.30pm at the Public Hall, Wellington Street, Woolwich SE18 6PW (entrance via Town Hall). Please scroll down for map of location.
Next rehearsal : Wednesdays at 7pm
