Somerset County Gazette:

Good Afternoon Choirs was founded 12 years ago by Grenville Jones, who is based in Bath. 

The Taunton choir is one of eight Good Afternoon Choirs that will launch this autumn. 

Jones said: "Come along and meet the Taunton Good Afternoon Choir on a Tuesday afternoon from 2pm at Temple Methodist Church. There’s no charge for attending the first rehearsal and bring a friend.

"Choirs are great for meeting new friends and enjoying the best hobby in the world."
