The choir has steadily grown and now has well over 30 regular members at its Monday evening meetings at the Friends’ Meeting House. It has a wide repertoire which includes pop, folk and songs from around the world The Oasis Café is to move to new premises this year, allowing it to open six days a week. Fundraising is underway to refit its new base.
