9 April 2015

Mellon, Demetriou and Leutwiler Visit The Hive

Gabbi Caldwell, another child on the workshop, said: "This is my second time here and it makes us feel special for Shrewsbury Town Football Club to come and see us."

Tara Shaw, one of the children at the workshop, said: "We do band making and we make our own songs. We do covers and learn to play new instruments which we haven't played before.

"All of the staff were lovely and it's a great environment for the kids to express themselves."

Manager Micky Mellon said: "The Hive is a fantastic place and one of Shrewsbury's best-kept secrets.

"They were asking some great questions to the Micky Mellon, Mickey Demetriou and Jayson Leutwiler, and Jayson wasn’t bad on the guitar either."

Aiden Wassell Health, Shrewsbury Town Community Sports Trust's health and inclusion officer, said: "The Hive do a great job of supporting the Community Covenant and Shropshire Young Carers, and this is a great project for the children to be involved with.

Leutwiler showed of his music skills by joining in with the group on the guitar, playing Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk. Afterwards he sat down with Mellon and Demetriou to answer a range of questions from the children.

Children who have arrived since Tuesday have been working together and building up to their final performance of Friday.
