A new singing group is being set up in Sheringham for anyone with a lung condition.

Twenty-nine singing groups have been set up by the British Lung Foundation (BLF) across the country.

Each group leader, in addition to being a trained musician or music therapist, has been given additional training to ensure the classes make a positive difference to each singer's lung health.

The classes are a joint project by the BLF, North Norfolk's Breathe Easy Support Group and not-for-profit company Playing for Cake.

They will take place from 2.45pm-3.45pm each Friday at Sheringham Community Centre from June 2.

There is no need to register, but a voluntary donation of £4 per class per participant will be requested.

Tina Blaber-Wegg, who is leading the singing group, said: 'We can bring opportunities for better lung health to people suffering from a range of conditions.'
