About the Shalfleet Shanty Singers
The Group was formed some two years ago by people who enjoy singing the working and other songs and ballads about the sea and seafaring life. Most of the songs we sing have good rousing choruses so everyone can join in.
We gave our first concert at the Village Hall, Shalfleet in November,which was a great success and raised £300 for the RNLI; it was felt that the Group should give more concerts and try to raise more money for local charities.
The Shafleet Shanty Singers meet every Monday evening from September to May at the Horse and Groom, Ningwood.
Singing usually commences at 7.30 pm and finishes at about 10 pm.
