Becconsall U3A Uklele Group

The Ukulele group continues to meet fortnightly at a member’s house. We also join a large group of ukulele players at the Hesketh Arms in Rufford on alternative fortnights. We are making progress and we are being supported by the welcome addition of Keith and Marilyn Shaw from Southport U3A. We were recently invited to play at Becconsall Old Church as part of their commemoration of the bombing during WW11. It was our first public appearance; a little nerve racking but we enjoyed playing a medley of songs from the era. Thank you to Jack and Enid for making the group so welcome at their home and for making the music stands. Also, thank you to Christine Smith for making out beautiful music stand covers. We are a happy, friendly group where new members are always welcome.
