Crossbow Singers
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 are only vacancies for tenors or basses, but this does vary from time to time.

The ladies’ choir uniform comprises a long black skirt or black trousers, green or black T-shirt and a floaty patterned jacket. The gentlemen wear black trousers and white shirt, together with either a green bow-tie (summer concert) or a red tie (Christmas concert). The ties and bow-ties are provided for the gentlemen, as are the green T-shirts for the ladies. New ladies will need to provide their own black T-shirt for the Christmas concert and will need to purchase one of the jackets via the choir.

There is an annual subscription of £40, 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 Bob Brain on 01454 772742.

Tickets for our concerts are currently £6 and details of how to obtain these can be found on posters dotted around the village nearer the time. Otherwise, please contact Bob, who will give you the relevant ‘box office’ telephone numbers.

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

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.
