The sounds of multiple ukuleles and joyful singing was ringing around Kihikihi on Tuesday, January 19.
It was the first Kihikihi Ukulele Club night for 2021 and the first anniversary of the formation of the club.
Co-ordinator Angela Brown said the club was grateful to the Kihikihi Bowling Club for providing a wonderful venue for 2020.
However, due to the growth of the club a new home has been found in the Anglican Church Hall across the road.

Forty people of all ages from Kihikihi and Te Awamutu and all around the region, including Te Kuiti, Cambridge, Morrinsville and Ōhaupō, attended the first club night.
A surprise guest, musician Henry Ashby, entertained everyone during the interval with the Bread song If, the forerunner for a solo or group performance as a regular feature of club nights this year.
A number of people who are new to ukulele are looking forward to Saturday beginner classes starting in the next few weeks.
Club nights are held fortnightly on a Tuesday, 7-8pm, doors open 6.30pm, $4 per night ($5 per night from March).
The next club night is next Tuesday. For further information contact Angela 870 2649.
