Keyhole (Keeping Your Hopes Alive)

To keep our singing community together, Come Singing started an interactive newsletter (Keyhole - keep your hopes alive).

There are musical quizzes, and the chance for people to share pictures, news, their poems, to talk about what music means to them, and to build a wish list of songs we'd like to sing in the future. Sending the newsletter by email means that we can illustrate people's stories and link answers to the quizzes to recorded music on Youtube - people can access music and sing!

However, as not everyone has a computer, Norfolk Community Foundation generously funded a good solid printer, enabling us to send out paper copies too.

Contact us at info@comesinging.org.uk to sign up for either the digital or printed newsletter.
