Group report

This is an article published in the Summer 2018 newsletter ….

HuggersLThe Huggers are continuing to perform and in the last few months have played for The Rowan's Day Care Centre, The Memory Clubs in Fareham and on Hayling, The Rainbow Centre in Fareham and Daisy Chain on Hayling. Donations we were given have been sent in their entirety to Naomi House/ Jack's Place.
We will be playing at the Hayling 3 Churches fete in August.

A brief gap in performing has given us the opportunity to find new songs to increase our repertoire. December will find us 'in panto' at Northney Village Hall plus we have Christmas gigs booked already.

This group is for reasonably experienced players and is full, however I have noticed that Hayling Library is advertising a course of beginner’s ukulele lessons beginning in November.

The ukulele group performing as the Hayling Huggers had a busy winter season. We began with playing for The Rowans Christmas Fair in November and ended with a pantomime, Alice in Blunderland, at Northney village hall in January.   In between we played a number of other gigs. All in all we raised just over £600 for Naomi House/Jack's Place Hospice.

As usual we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and met some great people along the way.
