Crossbow Singers, Frampton Cotterell
The Crossbow Singers is your local village community choir. They meet on a Monday evening, from 7.30-9.00 during term time, in the main hall of Crossbow House. Their Musical Director is Carolyn Dutton and they are accompanied on the piano by Mary Darby. The choir sings a variety of music from traditional songs to show stoppers, from popular ballads to classics. Hopefully, catering for all tastes!

Concerts are held twice a year, plus there are sometimes one or two additional engagements as requested by local groups. The Christmas Concert is normally held mid-December and the Summer Concert is held during July. Proceeds from the Christmas Concert help towards the purchase of new music, whilst local charities are chosen by the choir to benefit from the proceeds of the Summer Concert.

Crossbow Singers is a 4-part mixed choir and, whilst the ability to read music is an asset, it is not a requirement - all parts are practised individually. The only essential requirement is a love of singing! There is no audition! At the time of writing there is a short waiting list.

There is an annual subscription of £60, which is collected in September. Membership of the Frampton Cotterell Community Association is also a requirement.
If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact Dave Burman on 07834 184142.

Please support your local choir. We look forward to seeing you at our next concert.

Frampton Cotterell Pilates - Pilates Class

Liza is a fully qualified Pilates Foundation Matwork teacher and runs classes at beginner, improver and intermediate levels in Crossbow Hall. All mats and small equipment are provided, and in order to provide individual attention, each class size is restricted to an absolute maximum of 12 clients.

Pilates is an innovative system of mind-body exercises evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates. It is designed to elongate, strengthen and restore the body to balance. Based upon an anatomical understanding of the body's muscular and skeletal systems, the Pilates teacher creates a comprehensive exercise programme for the client. Classes will focus on specific areas individually whilst using exercises that integrate the whole body to re-educate and restore it to optimum muscular and skeletal function.
Pilates exercises help to strengthen, sculpt and tone the body while building long, lean muscles. A body with balanced strength and flexibility is less likely to be injured (and recover more quickly from strain or injury).

Other benefits include better posture, higher energy levels, increased co-ordination, balance, easy & graceful movement, flexibility and body awareness.

Pilates challenges and trains both the mind and the body. By emphasizing controlled breathing, correct body alignment and concentration on flowing movement, you become acutely aware of how your body feels, and how to control its movement.

Days and Times of classes:
Monday evenings 7.00pm - 8.00pm and 8.00pm - 9.00pm 
Thursday 9.30am 10:30am and 10.30am - 11:30am
