Community

With 1000 members there will always be someone who wants walk, run or cycle with you.  There are members that don’t do the sporty things and just get together to socialise, have coffee, eat cake or have nights out.

We have built a raft (for want of a better word) and sailed it, we have abseiled from the Forth Road Bridge and put in teams for marathons and taken part in many more sporting events.

We have our first Community Dreampot Singing group.  It’s totally free to attend.  Our aim is to provide singing groups for people who would struggle to attend regularly because of ill health or affordability.  Our first one is on Friday the 4th October form 10 till 12 at Pilrig Church.

We also have a matinee performance with 80 members of Sing in the City choirs and the Hanley and the Baird band who are all giving up their time for free to raise money for fur future Community Singing Classes.  This show is on Saturday the 2nd November at 14.00 at the Brunton theatre.

Our Sing in the City Dreampot  has raised and donated over £111,000 in the last 9 years and the money has been donated to many charities.

We have taken part and performed at so many charity events there are too many to mention but we have tried to make a list on our charity page.

We arrange busks and additional singing events and rehearsals so members can take part in as many singing events as possible.

This video was filmed over 2 busks.  One at Silverknowes just getting them out and about at the Boardwalk Beach cafe and at the Mound in Edinburgh as part of the Missing Millions campaign.  At least 200 members attended both events.
