Do you like singing? 

As part of our Jubilee Beacon event on 2nd June at the Bishop’s Palace, Wells, we would like to form a Girlguiding Choir of adults and young members aged 14+ to sing the specially commissioned Jubilee Song “A Life Filled With Grace”.  Words, music and a backing track can all be found here and a link to the melody here.

There will be two choir rehearsals – Friday May 6th and Monday 23rd May, both at Tangier starting at 7:30pm and lasting an hour.  If you would like to join the choir, please email Frances at franwbb@gmail.com so she knows to expect you.
