My Bath: Grenville Jones . . . singing should be prescribed by city GPs
Conductor and Golden-Oldies charity founder Grenville Jones answers the questions in our My Bath feature
What's your favourite part of Bath?
The stone bridge over the River Avon next to the Dolphin pub. It's a sunny Sunday morning and I am out on my run. Stopping to lean on the bridge and looking up to Saltford Weir with the reflection of the trees on the water, runners and cyclists, and a colourful houseboat moored up – peaceful.

The Cote Brasserie, Milsom Place. The staff are always friendly, it is a great venue with outdoor options and excellent choices.
What's the best view in the city?
Driving down from the A46 as it becomes dusk. Seeing the city lit up across the valley reminds you that living in Bath is a privilege.
What would your perfect day in Bath entail?
It happened in June. I worked with Bath Abbey to put on a Jubilee concert. The building was packed, my Bath Chorus were in superb form and we raised £6,000 for six small deserving local charities, chosen by the abbey.
Where would you meet friends for a drink?
At the Time Out Coffee Bar in the Guildhall Market with Bath legend Mike Watts. The Guildhall Market is one of Bath's greatest assets. You will find everything you want there.
What's your favourite shop?
The Silver Gift Shop In Union Passage, Bath. Family-owned and with the charming Guy Douglas in charge, along with the smiling Sophie.
What one thing about Bath would you change?
All of the GPs would sign up to a "singing on prescription" project. Bath and North East Somerset Council and city MP Don Foster would add their support and we show the world that Goldies can improve the lives of thousands of elderly people.
