  1. I saw on FACEBOOK YIU ARE HOLDING your meetings on skype. I looked on yiur web site for details with no luck. My mum usually attends Romford singing for THE Brain and I am having difficulty keeping her entertained at home as day care and lunch clubs are all closed. Could you give Me details for joining please

  2. Hello.
    My wife, Mary, has dimentia. She loves music, and when we used to go to the Cranham and upminster over 60s club (pre covid) she used to dance along with the musician. Similarly when she attended sessions at hopwa house.
    Unfortunstely, she has difficulty with speaking now, but does try to follow any singing on TV.
    It’sjust possble that trying to sing in company may help her condition.

    • Hello John,

      I have passed on your message to Gillian Ford. She will contact you direct.

      Kind regards

      Cllr John Tyler
