I have always loved singing since I was a toddler, and I started singing with mother and toddler groups when my children were born. I love having fun and when I joined the NVN in 2011, I wanted people to really enjoy singing together and be able to sing while still having fun. I started Singing for Fun in Purbrook that same year and it has now grown to over 50 members. I love learning new songs and watching them develop into performances and seeing the choir get a real sense of achievement.
I also lead Southsea Songbirds, also with around 50 members, a wonderful supportive group of ladies who love singing together. I run a U3A choir and 2 Saturday workshops monthly which are very popular. I co-lead Beating the Blues, set up for people feeling low who are able to meet up weekly and sing together. It’s an amazing group and we have a great deal of fun. I run a well-being group in Fratton which is set along the same structure, again fun and laughter. I sing song parts all week around the house and drive my family mad, but they love it all really and very often join in!
