Christmas Zoom Party
Get together 15 August
At the get together on 15th August we were able to meet and play together (socially distanced, of course) for the first time since lockdown. Everybody agreed it was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying, “sing like no one is listening. Well we could add, “Rehearse like there is no audience” Just read what Yvonne Rowley has said:-
“What a fantastic afternoon, I really enjoyed meeting with everyone and playing. Anyway as I was walking back to my car a lady asked if I had been playing next door at the AFC. She said that she had thoroughly enjoyed her afternoon listening to us all playing from her home near The Falcon and thought the best song was the last one “Valerie”. She said what a pleasure it was.”
Many thanks to Julie Bell for these images.
It has been a while since we were able to add anything on this page due to lockdown but while restricted to holding club nights on line we had a fancy dress night on 17th June 2020 and this was the result:-

Wyre Forest recordings
On Wednesday 25th September 2019 Mike Dickens visited the Bridgnorth Ukulele Club on behalf of the Wyre Forest Talking Newspaper. An organisation, which produces a regular newspaper for people who have sight impairment and would find a printed paper impractical. He spent the evening listening to the club members performing and was able to record some of the proceedings. He was also able to interview some of the members.
He described the atmosphere as “Scintillating”
Here are the results:-

For all lovers of the mellifluous tones of a turbocharged V8 accompanied by the gut-wrenching thunder of a dozen+ ukuleles: come along to Bridgnorth High Street on Sunday 1st September and bear witness to the creation of a new kind of music
A typical club night …
We have a winner….
of the Spooky Homepage Competition. Kris spotted it as of 15:18 this afternoon! People are moving around in the houses in the picture above. Each time you refresh the page (either via your browser or clicking the Home button) different lights go on an off in different rooms in the houses. There’s even a shadowy figure who sometimes appears in one of the windows. A set of strings will be coming your way Kris.
