“DD8 Music is a charity dedicated to promoting involvement in musical activities to people of all ages in the Kirriemuir area.
We run a recording and rehearsal studio in Kirriemuir. It is a space where people can have the freedom to experiment with music, and be encouraged to develop their talent. The group runs a variety of sessions every week, all of which are free to attend. They also work with other local groups and charities in helping to support their live events.
To enjoy the shared love of singing in a fairly small group setting. We sing a wide range of music from Baroque to popular song arrangements, mostly acappella. Ideally, members should be able to read music. At present we are looking for a soprano and bass. Please contact Glynis Bromage for additional information if interested.
Each institute has monthly meetings with either a speaker or a demonstration. The Federation organises competitions in sport, speech-making, choral singing and drama. There are also classes for crafts and cookery. Membership is open to all women over the age of 14.
Friday evening meeting, once a month from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Meeting place Newton Hall, Panbride Church, Carnoustie.
Notes: Aims to enhance members’ knowledge and enjoyment of classical music through musically illustrated talks.
At the Angus Dementia Resource Centre in Arbroath we aim to provide a central hub for information and support for people affected by dementia throughout Angus.
Carer Groups offer mutual support and sharing of information in a confidential setting.
Details of Carers Groups can be obtained by contacting Angus Services direct.
The Service aims to support the families, relatives and friends of people with dementia at any stage of the illness.
Carers support from Alzheimer Scotland is free and offers advice, information and emotional and practical support through:
· Telephone contact
· Home visits
· Carers Groups
· Information leaflets and books
· Education courses and events
· Information about local services and resources Involvement
Carers tell us they experience feelings of isolation; feelings of loss and grief; insufficient support and insufficient information: Alzheimer Scotland understands.
We also run a number of informal Drop-in groups, throughout Angus, for people with dementia, their families and friends.
All our groups are for people who are able to attend on their own safely or who can bring their own support with them.
