The recently renamed Chichester Group contingent of the South Downs Folk Singers goes from strength to strength. We started out five years ago calling ourselves the Easebourne Group and singing together once a month in the White Horse Inn near Midhurst. We then in the interim made our home in the Three Moles at Selham. However now the consensus of opinion is that we should relocate permanently on the third Thursday of every month to the Chichester Inn in West Street, Chichester, where we have a good acoustic for singing, plenty of space to welcome new members and a genuine warm welcome from Nick the landlord. And there’s ample free parking in the car park over the road (just under the city walls).
Last night 19 of us met to socialise and sing a jolly selection of 14 mainly traditional songs celebrating all things to do with life, love, drinking and our lovely Sussex hills. We welcomed two new members, Jo and Corrin, who joined in with the singing even though most of the songs were completely new to them. But that’s how it is with the South Downs Folk Singers. It costs nothing to join – all you have to do is come along to one of our sessions and you’ll be made most welcome! Thank you to all who attended last night. See you again at the Chichester Inn on Thursday 16th March at 7.30 for an 8.00 pm start.
