St Merryn Ukes are an amateur ukulele group based in North Cornwall.

The Group was founded in April 2017 by Dave Healy, who invited three friends, Ross Cook, Phil Slater and John Heslop to join him for a jam session at The Farmers Arms in St. Merryn village.

2 weeks later Sarah Cowling joined and Johnny Cowling followed on a week or so later.

The group played their first gig at The Farmers Arms on 19th July 2017.

Since then several more players have joined and the band now has 35 members from the local community and summer residents.

The group have raised over £5000 to date which has been donated to many local and south west charities including Children’s Hospice South West and the Air Ambulance, Marie Curie Cancer Care and the RNLI.

The band meet on Monday evenings at 7 pm to rehearse their songs and entertain visitors to the pub.

Guests are usually welcome to join in singing or playing their Ukes.

Membership is currently closed.
