It was a beautiful sunny day on May 24th 2019, when The Mid Wessex Singers were invited by Langport Dementia Action Alliance to sing at their coffee morning being held in the gardens of The Angel on Bow Street, Langport.

We had a fun morning ‘singing in a circle’ along with the regular attendees of the Monday morning “singing for the brain” group and their carers. They usually meet at High Ham Village hall most weeks. The singing was led by Rev. Jess Pitman with her apparently endless energy. I have to confess, I was exhausted after all the moves which accompanied the singing!

The members of the choir then entertained everyone with a set of songs about birds and, believe it or not, the blackbird in the garden seemed to sing along with us!!

The morning ended with coffee and cake from The Angel Cafe. A most enjoyable and worthwhile morning was had by all!
