Gingins Song Group
 
The Gingins Song Group meets once per month, usually, on a Tuesday evening, for a practice in Luins.  We accompany the congregation in Church on the third Sunday of every month and also at important festivals, such as on Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday.  We have 23 members on our list and, on average, 12 join us regularly for practice and Church performances.  On 22 November 2015, the Gingins Song Group performed for the 100th time since it was formed.  Margaret Ducommun (second from the left) told members of the congregation that it all began with a carol singing evening at her home  in December 2006 to which she invited Paul Holley, the Chaplain of La Côte at that time.  Paul later asked her husband Harold if he would be willing to set up a Song Group to add another dimension to the singing in Gingins, and the first performance was held on 20 January 2007.  Practices are an important part of the package and friendship has developed thanks to round the table discussions.The camaraderie and fellowship are very strong and after practice sessions we enjoy a glass of wine, nibbles and a good chat!  Our aim is for us all to enjoy being together, taking pleasure in leading and singing with the congregation - and we all know that we do not have to be accomplished musicians and trained singers to do that!  We would be happy to welcome more male voices.  Interested guys, please contact Margaret email
