Outreach

Emscote Community Singing Group


An opportunity to enjoy having a good sing together and a sense of well-being! 

An accessible and broad mix of songs and styles. 

Meets at All Saints Church on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday in the month. 

No audition necessary.


Open to all:  from 18 to 80+ years.


Leaders: Sally Greenaway and Alice Webber. 


Singing - a full bodied workout for heart, brain and lungs! 

By singing together you engage socially, and engage more parts of the brain than normal. .. 

To achieve that, there doesn't even have to be be a good sound. 

The main thing is that you're having fun over all. 

(from a report on BBC Breakfast TV, 11-12-17)



Work on reducing those cortisol levels!

Regular singing is an extremely impressive stress reliever.

The Big Knitted Christmas Tree 2018

BEAVERING AWAY AT ALL SAINTS CHURCH


Spring 2018.


BEAVERS found a fun way to count knitted squares for the Big Knitted Christmas Tree.


in teams they took turns to run through the slalom balancing 10 squares on their heads.  Their leaders kept a tally. 


Altogether they counted just over 1000 squares.


Still many more to go!

THE KNIT-A-THON AT WARWICK MARKET - AUGUST 2018
We had a joyful day at Warwick Market on August 4th.  The sun shone, the visitors to the market were intrigued by the knitted lights, baubles and stacks of green knitted squares.  Several had read about the BIG KNITTED CHRISTMAS TREE  through Wednesday's free newspaper, others through listening to BBC radio Coventry and Warwickshire the day before.  We enjoyed the lively conversations and lots more people have pledged to knit for the BKCT.
