Golden Oldies for our silver haired songbirds

A charity that hits all the right notes is bringing music and fun to South Gloucestershire’s senior citizens.

South Gloucestershire Council and Merlin Housing Society are supporting Golden Oldies – a charity that runs singing sessions for the over 60s, providing entertainment and promoting social inclusion.

The council is supporting Golden Oldies for the second year running. The sessions are free and offer relaxed, fun singing sessions for older people. Each session features a leader who will encourage participants to sing favourite songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s.

The sessions take place weekly at a range of venues across South Gloucestershire, including Downend, Kingswood, Yate, Filton and Thornbury on a monthly basis.

Councillor Matthew Riddle, executive member for community care and housing, said: “Golden Oldies is an excellent initiative and we are delighted to be able to fund these sessions. They will help to improve social opportunities and the quality of life for many older people in South Gloucestershire.”

For more information please contact the Golden Oldies on 01761 470006. Golden Oldies can help arrange transport if you have difficulty in getting to the sessions.
