Sorry to say that after the meeting this coming Monday (17th) which will go ahead as usual, I’ve had to cancel the meetings for the rest of the year due to ill health and admission to hospital for major surgery. I’m not sure when we will be able to resume but will see how things are at the time of the first meeting of 2017, which is on 9th January.



Jane’s husband here on behalf of Jane. Sadly I must announce that Jane died peacefully in her sleep at Marie Curie Hospice on 23/11/2016 following complications after ovarian cancer.

Next meeting – 22nd August

The next meeting will be on 22nd August as usual. Apologies for the cancellations. Hopefully on Monday I’ll be able to mangle a few chords, if not I shall rattle some percussion and drone along in the usual fashion.

I’ve updated the calendar for the remainder of the year.

Hope to see you on Monday. In the meantime, enjoy the good weather we’re supposed to be having this week.

Unfortunately due to ill health I won’t be able to attend the next couple of meetings. As numbers are already depleted and there may be difficulties with locking up etc, it seems easiest to cancel the next two meetings and resume on MONDAY 22 AUGUST. Apologies for the short notice and any inconvenience.

I’ve now updated the calendar (somewhat tardily, for which I apologise) with dates for meetings for the next few months.

I’ve made a new page with the list as it stands so far. Add to it by posting a comment with your ideas of what we should be including (or indeed excluding).

I’ve come out of hibernation to add a new link ukulele to the appropriate page. This is an excellent site from Dave Ellis which is aimed mostly at beginners but has something for everybody and lots of interesting and useful stuff to explore.

This year’s festive frivolity was yet another addition to the ever-expanding uke family that is taking over my house. It’s a Makala Waterman, cost less than a bottle of decent single malt, comes with Aquila strings, is almost invisible and plays rather well.



Hope you are all well. Happy New Year and hope to see you on the 11th.
