GOLDEN-Oldies singalong sessions at Cross Hills are restarting.

Face-to-face ‘Goldies’ classes, which took place at locations across the country, ended in March last year when lockdown began.

The charity behind the venture, which has been credited with brightening the lives of thousands of isolated older people, moved the sessions online.

But now the traditional classes are being reintroduced over the coming weeks at venues throughout England and Wales.

And Cross Hills is amongst the first – at St Peter’s Methodist Church, Main Street, on the first Tuesday of every month from September 7, 2pm to 3pm.

The Golden-Oldies charity was founded by musician Grenville Jones in 2007.

“I wanted to grab the atmosphere of fun and friendship and bring it to older isolated people through daytime ‘singalongs’ of the memory-evoking hits of the 60s and onwards,” he said.

“Goldies gives older isolated people something to look forward to – a chance to get out and make new friends.”

Support is provided by the People’s Postcode Lottery.
