Two West Norfolk ukulele players have set up a new club for budding musicians and are now appealing for more members to come foward and join their fortnightly meetings.

Grimston’s Richard English founded the group earlier this year with the help of fellow ukulele player, Keith Sharples, of Walpole St Peter, after the two found each other on a site for ukulele clubs.

Mr English said: “I wanted to learn another instrument and at the end of last year I purchased a ukulele much to the annoyance of my wife. All the websites said a group was the best way to learn but there weren’t any in the area.

“I saw that Keith had posted on a site about wanting a group in the West Norfolk area and got in touch.”

The pair hunted down other ukulele players across the area and ended up with a group of about 20 members, which has since risen to around 30.

Mr English said: “We’re now looking to get more people to join our group. We meet every other Tuesday at The Anvil Inn at Congham for an informal get-together.

“We just sing and have a laugh but hope to do charity events in future. We want to appeal to younger people to join the group, anyone over 18 is welcome.”

Call Mr English on 07767 316866 for more information or go to the next meeting on July 29 from 7.30pm.
