Local mums have come together to form a choir and sing whilst destressing without their children.

The group gathers every Saturday, each session Mums are able to have a break and chat.

Most importantly the group is aiming to tackle poor mental health and have created a strong community support group amongst themselves.

Georgia Jakibiak, founder of the Singing Mums said: “singing is scientifically proven to be really good for your mental and physical health, it reduces the stress hormone in your body, so that’s why singing is the perfect club for Mums to come to”.

She added: “If your the sort of person that doesn’t like to go to the gym it’s the same release of endorphins that you get from exercise”.
