Libraries are not the usual place that you would expect to go for a fun sing-along, but that is now definitely not the case after a new lunchtime sing-along session was launched yesterday Tuesday November 3 at the Cardiff Central Library Hub.

 The Goldies CYMRU Charity is spreading across Wales with its daytime singing and activity sessions for older vulnerable people.

The partnership with Cardiff Libraries is a new development for Goldies CYMRU. Cllr Judith Woodman is a member of the Goldies CYMRU Management Board. She attended yesterdays launch.

 Cllr Woodman said;

 “The highlight for me was seeing the sheer happiness and delight on so many faces. Everyone had a whale of a time, our Council staff were very impressed and joined in the singing. What a fantastic afternoon. Goldies is certainly Golden and brightens so many lives.”

 Goldies CYMRU also launched its new book of Welsh folk songs and local folk singer Nia Ann performed some of the songs.

 By the close of 2015 there will be over 40 daytime singing sessions across Wales. The charity also has a hugely successful schools intergenerational programme called Time after Time and to date over 60 schools from across Wales have taken part with events that include older people from their local communities.
