Our singing group, Take Note Singers, sang in the café at the Royal NZ Police College last night for our usual Tuesday session.
Our leader, David Dell, is the Chaplain at the Police College hence the connection.
We sing and share supper together and provide music for the often bemused looking people who are still at work or on courses at the college.
I sometimes wonder what they make of us all singing with enthusiasm as a one off event at the end of each term.
My hope is that the happy vibes and pleasant sounds are uplifting to the people who train in the often stressful and traumatic field of policing.
Last night we sang a variety of Christmas songs and carols. Some are traditional, some very New Zealand, some well known, some sweet and new.
Next week, our final session for the year, sees us singing at a local Rest Home. We’ll present some music and include the residents and staff in some sing-a-long Christmas music.
