The Jubilee Singers
New Milton Community Centre

Singing is good for you is what they say and we, in the Jubilee Choir are proof of this. We are a fun choir in that we enjoy every note we sing - well - almost every note, sometimes we go a bit off key but that doesn't matter at all, its all part of the fun. You don't have to read music either although this would be useful, and you don't have to have an audition. We practice on a Wednesday afternoon at the Community Centre from 2-4 pm so you don't have to come out on cold dark nights.

Poetry Appreciation
New Milton Community Association

Suggestions are made for topics at the November meeting and then eleven are agreed upon by members.
The meetings are very different from most people's memories of school poetry lessons. We meet to enjoy poetry and share our favourites, not to analyse and make critiques of them. Some poets make regular appearances; for example Pam Ayres, Wordsworth, Keats and John Betjeman but many are less well known or lived centuries ago.
Most people come with poems to read and some prefer to listen as others read their choices. It is a small group but new members are always made very welcome.

New Forest Organ Society

This Society was formed in 1979 and the membership steadily increased from 15 people until 1994 when the number reached 200, and it soon became necessary to form a membership waiting list. Since then the concert evenings are either full or nearly full - the hall holds 200. Members have the advantage of booking in advance but there are usually 30 - 50 tickets to sell to members and non-members at the door. Concerts are held monthly and are usually - but not always - on the fourth Tuesday in the month.

New Members are always warmly welcomed. There is no entrance Audition but players need to be of at least Grade 5 to be comfortable. We find that regular orchestral playing soon dispels rustiness so many players have enjoyed returning to their instruments after several (or in some cases , many) years gap.
