Are there any Little Belters in your house?

Some of you may have been involved with Lymm Big Sing over the past couple of years, over 100 people have sing with us,  so it is great to see a new group for your youngsters with a similar "no audition, sing for fun but do it right"  philosophy starting up in the village this month.  It would be great to have the two groups performing together at next Summer's Lymm Festival. 

Created especially for 5-11 year olds, Little Belters is a group for children who simply love to sing and a new group is launching in Lymm on Thursday 24th September.

Set up in 2012 by professional singers and sisters, Claire and Tina O’Brien, Little Belters currently has two thriving ensembles in Altrincham and Chorlton, where new members are welcomed throughout the year. Key to their success is a strict no-audition policy, all children are welcome whatever their ability.

The group in Lymm will rehearse every Thursday in term time from 4.45pm-5.45pm at the Youth and Community Centre on Bridgewater Street and they are RECRUITING MEMBERS NOW!

Little Belters’ members learn proper singing technique in a fun, fast-paced environment. There are lots of opportunities to perform whether it’s at prestigious venues like Manchester Cathedral, at local community events, on TV or in the recording studio.

Unlike a traditional choir, Little Belters run rehearsals like high energy, group singing lessons. They use all kinds of games, techniques and repertoire to develop children’s voices. The group approach is a cost-effective alternative to individual vocal tuition, and is particularly effective during primary years. It also means even the most timid child can participate as they are working as part of a team - this gives them time and space to develop confidence. As each Little Belter grows more relaxed and their vocal ability improves there are opportunities for solos, duets, trios and small group performances.

Claire says “We’re contacted all the time by parents who say their children never stop singing. At home, in the car, everywhere! These kids LOVE music….particularly pop music and we work with that rather than frowning upon it. We believe that learning to sing should be a joyful experience that leaves children feeling uplifted and happy. Children have to deal with a lot of stress, pressure and competition these days and singing provides a release from all that.”

If you know a child that simply loves singing, book them in for a free taster session, no audition necessary. Contact Tina on 07740 464507 or Claire on 07779 668204 email hello@littlebelters.co.uk or visit www.littlebelters.co.uk to see Little Belters in action.

Lymm Beer Festival To Top Up The Ales

The Lymm Beer Festival is back for its fifth year and organisers Lymm and District Round Table are promising it will be bigger and better than ever.

This year’s charity event, once again sponsored by Warrington-based Urban Building Projects Limited, will take place on Friday 4th (6pm-11pm) and Saturday 5th (noon-11pm) September in Lymm Village Hall and over 38 cask ales will be on offer plus a selection of ciders, perrys, wine and even a craft lager! The Round Table team have tried hard to select as many breweries from the local area as possible, many of which will be unknown to ale lovers so the event is a real opportunity to try some different local brews.

There will also be live music throughout both days, food from the ladies circle and free soft drinks for non-drinkers. The entry fee is £5 evenings/£3 Saturday afternoon (discounts for CAMRA members) which includes a pint glass created specifically for the event. Families are welcome on the Saturday afternoon session and all cask ales and ciders are at one great price of £2.50 a pint.

Opportunities remain to sponsor a cask for £80 which will include a mention in the programme, at the event, on the festival’s website and Twitter and Facebook feeds. Sponsors will also receive four tickets to the event and £20 of beer tokens.

Lymm and District Round Table member and beer festival organiser Rich Storey said: “The beer festival is continuing to grow in success and we will be having more beers than ever before to satisfy thirsty drinkers. The ale selection this year has a big focus on brews from around the region but there'll still be space for some of the old favourites.”

For more information about this year's beer festival visit www.lymmbeerfest.co.uk, find it on Facebook or Twitter, or, if you're interested in sponsoring a cask email beerfestival@lymmroundtable.co.uk or call Rich on 07929 357580.

It was our Captains Charity Day last friday, and for the fourth year i was asked to do the photos. It was a gorgeous day so it made life a little easier. 18 holes, over 20 teams of four, and trying to ensure you capture everyone and using different tees, greens & fairways. Later on i have to show them on the large TV screen as a continuous slideshow throughout the evening meal and presentations. Quite a challenge believe me ! - 3 viewsIan,Phil ( white shirt, Captain) and guests on the first tee. - 5 viewsA midday capture just before the golfers came out to their respective tees. - 5 views
