The adult singing group is back! Enjoy a good old sing-along and ‘gie it laldy’, fill the library with the sound of music with old favourites such as Jeanie McColl and Delilah. Everyone's welcome to join in and enjoy a refreshing cuppa afterwards. Join us for an informal and relaxed exploration of extracts and poetry to bring a sense of wellness from reading.
