Crossbow Singers is your local village community choir. They meet on a Monday evening, from 7.30-9.00 during term time only, in the main hall of Crossbow House. Their Musical Director is Rachel Gittoes and they are accompanied on the piano by Mary Darby. The choir sings a variety of music from traditional to show stoppers, to popular ballads and 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 just before the end of the Autumn Term in December and the Summer Concert is held during July. Proceeds from the Christmas Concert help towards the purchase of new music, whilst two charities, usually local, are chosen 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 choir uniform comprises a long black skirt or black trousers and white blouse for the ladies, and black trousers and white shirt for the gentlemen. There is an annual subscription of £35, which is normally collected in September, and membership of the Frampton Cotterell Community Association is also a requirement.
If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact the choir Chairman, Jenny Hollister, on 01454 313037. 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 Jenny, 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.
Days and Times of classes:
Monday evenings - 7 - 8 pm Thursday morning sessions 9.30 - 11.30 Friday morning sessions 9.30 - 12.30
