The Lithgow Ukulele group celebrated three years of musical fun on Tuesday, November 5.
The group, which started from humble beginnings, has 'grown and grown' over the past three years according to original member Annette Creavy.
It all started when Dot Hughes, and Jenny and Annette Creavy came into the library to participate in adult colouring when they were asked if they would like to learn how to play the ukulele.
"It just exploded from there and it has continued to grow and I've made a lot of friends doing this," Annette said.
"Some people don't play but they just come and listen and we hope it sounds good."
Lithgow Ukulele group leader Julie Bowcher said she had been apart of the group for around two years now.
"It is such a fun group and the music really brings us all together," she said.
"We try to play at events like the Ukulele festival in Katoomba, which we are currently practising for, we also do nursing home visits, library events and council events at the park."
Ms Bowcher said that, since they have been growing rapidly, they now have two separate groups.
"We have a group upstairs in the library who are beginners and they learn the chords before they feel confident enough to join the group downstairs," she said.
"It's all for free and we welcome everyone."
Ukulele player Miriam Palmer said that when she came in 2017 there were around 20 other enthusiastic members.
"The people make the group, and when I joined...and even now, if you are new people will stop to include you and make you feel welcome," she said.
"The instrument isn't very complicated, and is easy to transport so I would of course encourage anyone who wants to learn to come along."
Member Velma McFadden said she really enjoyed playing with the group.
"Everyone here is so friendly and it's just a great atmosphere with some great music to go along with it," she said.
"Three years is quite the achievement and we just keep growing, at this rate we will outgrow the library."
