Getting a bit older can bring some challenges, including memory loss and it is a well-established fact that singing can help neurological activity in all situations whether young or old.
For this reason a singing group, Musical Memories, was started in Taynuilt in the spring of 2015. The songs are well known Scottish and popular tunes with musical accompaniments. Song books are provided with large print covering a wide gamet of musical interests as well as action songs in the ‘silly songs’ section.
The Group currently meets on alternate Wednesday 's in the Sports Pavillion in Taynuilt. There is tea and coffee from 2.30 – 3.00 for socialising before the singing starts at 3.00 until 4.00. A band of voluntary helpers are there to welcome and chat with everyone whilst the singing is led by Alison Pringle on keyboard. Participants and helpers thoroughly enjoy the afternoon. T
All aged 50+ residents are very welcome to come along to the Group.
