Come and join us: choir
A CHOIR is hoping for a small slice of the Olympic legacy.
Singing makes you fit, says The Pilgrimaires, a Plymouth-based men's chorus, after they took part in last weekend's Devonport Park Bandstand Marathon to mark the end of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Now they are inviting men to join their latest "Sing with Us" course, which starts next month.
"The health benefits of singing are very well documented, and choral singing is one of the easiest and pleasantest ways of keeping fit," said John Bush from the Pilgrimaires.

"Our style of unaccompanied close harmony singing offers a truly enjoyable and sociable activity which singers at every level of skill should experience."
The free "Sing with Us" course will run from every Thursday from October 18 to November 22.
The chorus meets at St Budeaux Foundation School in Priestly Avenue, Higher St Budeaux, with sessions beginning at 7.30pm.
Singers – men only – need have no previous experience, and don't need to be able to read music in order to participate.
The Pilgrimaires will be performing in Plymouth city centre over the coming weeks.
Performances will take place on Saturdays between 11.30am and 12.30pm: in the Pannier Market on September 22, and October 13, and in the Armada Centre on October 6.
