A new singing group in Stoneleigh hopes to tackle memory problems associated with old age.

Mayor of Epsom & Ewell, Cllr Liz Frost, and her Consort Cllr Chris Frost, joined volunteers at the opening on May 9.

The group - 'You Must Remember This' - is based in Stoneleigh Methodist Church and hopes to bring "fun and friendship" to people struggling with their memory.

The group believes singing exercises both body and mind and boosts mental wellbeing.

By singing together, they hope to revive memories and stimulate the brain.

Councillors Frost and Frost wished the new group success and joined in singing some of the songs that will be part of regular afternoons.

The group stressed everyone must be accompanied by a friend relative or carer and no singing experience is necessary, "just come along and enjoy yourself".

They meet on Wednesday afternoons 2.00- 3.30pm, except the first Wednesday of each month, at Stoneleigh Methodist Church, Stoneleigh Crescent, KT19 0RT.
