Choir Welcomes Ready, Steady, Go Committee

Ready, Steady Go Committee Ladies with the Choir

Following Caldicot Male Voice Choir’s fund raising for the Wales Air Ambulance Charity this year, it is pleased to announce that it is supporting local, Undy based charity Ready, Steady, Go in 2022.

Ready, Steady, Go is a registered charity (no. 1183203) and organises much needed events and activity suitable for children with autism at its base in Undy and in the community. It also provides peer support for parents and carers of the children who take part in these activities. The club helps develop social interaction and friendship by providing opportunities through supported play in a safe, comfortable, positive and considerate environment.

At practice on Monday 22nd November it was delighted to welcome five members of the Ready, Steady Go committee to its Choir Hall who were thrilled to listen to the Choir go through a short repertoire.

An opportunity was given to Cathryn Duke to relate a summary of the purpose and aims of the charity to the choristers during a break in practice. Charity chairperson, Tracy Stafford expressed her profound, sincere thanks to the Choir for selecting Ready, Steady, Go as its nominated charity for next year and is looking forward to working with the Choir to maximise the fund raising potential.

The club meets at Undy Church Hall and will shortly be taking over the lease of this building. This will allow expansion of its activities and support and the Choir hopes that through its fund raising efforts in 2022 the money raised will significantly help in this endeavour.

Choir invites local men to join


Due to Covid-19 restrictions Caldicot Male Voice Choir has been unable to perform its programme of concerts for about 19 months. A consequence of this is that it has been unable to recruit new members as well. Sadly during the pandemic a number of choristers have passed away or retired and have not been replaced.


To offset this the Choir has started a drive to invite men from the area to join. This began on Saturday 6th November when a number of choristers braved the freezing weather at Caldicot Town Centre to invite male passers-by to learn a little about the choir and invite them to visit the Choir Hall in Mill Lane to listen to its practice. To the choristers’ delight, several men showed an interest and promised to give it some thought.


Choristers will repeat this invitation at the two special Saturday Markets in December. Please look out for them.
If you are interested please come along to any practice on a Monday or Thursday evening from 7-00pm for a listen and a chat.

You do not need to be a great singer to be part of this Choir because we all sing in harmony and sometimes in unison. There is no obligation to join so come in from the cold and have a look and a listen. You will be surprised.
