The Synchro Singers meet at 7.30pm every Wednesday at Denman Hall, on Moorgate, the home of Retford Operatic Society.

Everyone over the age of 14 is welcome to come along and have a sing at the weekly rehearsals.

Material will be a mix of pop, musicals and light opera numbers arranged in parts.

The plan is to get a number of songs ready to perform, then give the performances a polish at charity and fundraising events.

“There is nothing like a good sing to lighten your load and boost your wellbeing,” said Mike Mahony.

A new study has found that singing in a choir can even boost your mental health. Researchers carried out an online survey of 375 people who sang in choirs, sang alone, or played team sports. All three activities yielded high levels of psychological wellbeing, but choristers stood out as experiencing the greatest benefit.

Mike added: “So if you want to meet new friends and have a jolly good time, pop down to the Denman Hall every Wednesday evening and put some fun back into your life.”
