Hello and welcome!

Hello and welcome to the blog for Bay City Ukers! We are a ukulele club who started meeting in February 2011, and now meet up about once a month at the Golf Club, off Nelson Road, Whitstable. The idea was to create a uke group for people living on the coastal strip of East Kent who found it hard to get to groups in the more central towns.

Playing ukulele has become an extremely popular pastime again over the last few years and uke groups are appearing everywhere. Each is different but ours focuses on simply having fun playing together and doesn't take itself seriously. Beginners are very welcome and we can choose some easy songs to play if you have only just started.

Gordon's email zygite@gmail.com if you have any further questions this blog doesn't answer. Hope to see you there! The wearing of tartan is neither necessary nor obligatory, and if you have a non-uking partner, feel free to bring them along to shake their maracas and sing along.

Oh Yes! 

On 2nd May more than 90 people packed in to the Umbrella Centre in Whitstable where they plunked, plinked, strummed and sung their very hearts out in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières,  about whose work we were treated to several Expert Facts.

We learned, for instance,  that they could sooth your belli in Delhi, ease your pain in Bahrain,  and get you a CT scan in Tajikistan.  

I hope that everyone enjoyed whooping it up as much as I did, and thanks again to Val and her team for the organisation,  tickets, bar, raffle and generally jigging it about, and to Bill and Clive who bravely agreed to be my wingmen.

All being well, see you on 28 May for more diminutive cordophone shenanigans. 

Best wishes,
